History Associates Documents History of the Department of Homeland Security
History Associates Incorporated has completed two documentary histories for the Department of Homeland Security History Office. The reference documents were authored by History Associates archivist Elizabeth C. Borja in celebration of the Department of Homeland Security’s fifth anniversary in March 2008.
A Brief Documentary History of the Department of Homeland Security: 2001-2008 tells the story of the creation of the department and its evolving organizational history through the founding documents, including legislation, executive orders, commission reports and recommendations, reorganization plans, presidential directives, speeches, and organization charts. DHS Senior Leadership: The First Five Years: 2003-2008 features descriptions of senior leadership positions and past and current leaders and their tenure dates.
Ms. Borja researched and wrote both reference documents at the DHS History Office archives, established and maintained by History Associates under contract with the DHS Office of Policy. The histories are available on the department website at http://www.dhs.gov/history.
