    Historical Note:

    The Atlantic Council of the United States was established in 1961 in Washington, D.C. It is a private American organization which encourages U.S. participation in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and other international relations. The Council also works for the strengthening of U.S. private sector links in the fields of trade, finance, investment, sciences, technology, communications and education with the other North Atlantic countries.
    The Council is a non-profit organization which has financial support from corporations, foundations, and individual businessmen, financiers, labor leaders and others. It maintains fraternal ties with similar organizations in other nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
    The Atlantic Institute and the Atlantic Treaty Association are private international organizations which promote cooperation among the Atlantic countries. They research the forces at work in the Atlantic area, organize meetings, and prepare reports, studies and policy recommendations for influential administrators in their countries. The Boards of Governors, staff and financing come from various countries.
    The Atlantic Council and the Atlantic Institute formed the Committee on Atlantic Studies in 1964. This committee consists of scholars from leading universities who advise the Boards of the Atlantic Council and the Atlantic Institute. The goal of the committee is to bring about a greater appreciation in American education of the economic, political, and cultural changes which are taking place in Western civilization.
