Of the various committees comprised of the individuals who serve on the Museum's Board of Trustees, the only one for which d'Harnoncourt retained her files long term is the Nominating Committee, which by 2004 became the Committee of Trustees. The committee was charged with selecting for election potential members to the Board, the Executive Committee, and the Nominating Committee, as well as Trustee officers. D'Harnoncourt, along with other Museum officers, participated on the committee at the invitation of its Trustee members. Committee folders include meeting agendas and minutes, planning memoranda and notes, as well as lists of current Trustees and study charts and other biographical descriptions of potential nominees, including press clippings. There is also a small amount of correspondence, primarily between d'Harnoncourt and committee chairman or potential nominees. Any files for the ad hoc and other standing committees are included in Series I. For the most part, departmental advisory committee materials are included in the corresponding departmental file.
The remaining files to this subseries were transferred from Series I as they pertain to the general operation and business of the Board. "General" files offer assorted, but minimal, information. In these, d'Harnoncourt's correspondence with individual Board members touches on issues such as their private art collections, Museum activities, as well as the activities of the Trustees' business affiliations. Interoffice memoranda, press clippings and press releases concerning individual members are also included; as are contribution reports and other confidential Trustee donor profiles. [With the exception of the contribution reports, Series I contains similar documentation in files titled by the individual's name.] There are also a few letters with City Council members who, along with the mayor and governor, serve as Ex-Officio Trustees. Reference material consists of a few issues of Museum Trusteeship, which is published by a professional association of the same name, and other general leadership articles. There is no general folder for 2006. The subject files that follow consist primarily of various reports and member lists. Although there is a separate folder of papers dating 1996-1999, most "orientation" documentation is interfiled in the general folders and consists of Orientation Committee minutes, meeting planning papers and feedback questionnaires from Board members participating in orientation sessions.
