The PDF files below contain photographs of documents circulated at the Bretton Woods conference, from daily news bulletins to the telephone directory at the Mount Washington Hotel.

Proceedings and Documents of the Bretton Woods Conference
In 1948 the U.S. Department of State issued a two-volume set of proceedings from the Bretton Woods conference. The proceedings contain minutes of all major and most minor committee meetings. The ground rules of the conference, however, stated that minutes would generally avoid telling who said what. Minutes are accordingly much shorter than the corresponding transcripts, usually only describing the outcome of debates and smoothing over controversies rather than giving the full flavor of what transpired.
