Zwick, Memo to President Lyndon B. Johnson, 1965

This 1965 memorandum to President Lyndon B. Johnson addresses the transfer of funds for Cuban refugee assistance in the United States. Charles Zwick, former director of the United States Office of Management and Budget, requested $1.8 million to assist with the unanticipated costs of resettling Cuban immigrants fleeing Fidel Castro’s communist regime. Zwick suggested using the funds to “maintain an even and orderly flow” of refugees into the U.S. and help them resettle in multiple states.
