Notes for Arthur Alden Kimball
was In pres. Eisenhower's White House Staff in Wash D.C.


His wife, Betty, filed a collection of his unpublished writings in the Dwight D. Eisenhower Library in Nov 1997.
She included a summary of his life:


Kimball entered government service in 1928 when he went to work
for the Commerce Department. Over the next several years he worked for the National
Recovery Administration and the Social Security Board. At the start of World War II he
joined the army and became a budget officer in the War Department. He later served as
Chief of Administration for the U.S. prosecution team at the Nazi war crimes trials in
Nurnberg, Germany.


After the war Kimball worked in the State Department and helped George Marshall
establish the Economic Cooperation Administration for administering the Marshall Plan.
Kimball later served as head of the International Information Administration, a branch of
the State Department.


When the IIA became a separate agency, the U.S. Information
Agency, in 1953, President Eisenhower allowed Kimball to serve as acting director until
the first full-time director, Theodore Streibert, could take office. Kimball then joined the
White House staff as staff director of the President s Advisory Committee on
Government Organization (PACGO). He assisted the committee chairmen, Nelson
Rockefeller and Arthur Flemming, and managed the work of the committee s
professional staff.


In November 1960 President Eisenhower appointed Kimball to the
National Labor Relations Board. The Senate did not confirm the appointment and
Kimball left government service after John F. Kennedy became president. He practiced
law in Washington, DC, for 5 years, and then returned to government service in 1966.
He worked for the Social Security Administration and the Department of Health,
Education and Welfare. From 1972 to 1974 he was Director of International Training at
the Agency for International Development. In December 1974 he retired and moved to
Florida where he became alumni officer at the Florida Institute of Technology.
