War records from the special assistant for Economic Warfare, H. Neff. (RG 107, Entry 160, Boxes 906-907, 910, 927-929) Unfortunately there were no minutes for the Office of Economic Warfare. However it provides a very interesting picture of the hard-line taken by the War Dept., and specifically Assistant Secretary of War Robert Patterson. They were consistently a voice calling for more stringent measures against the Swiss, and doubting Swiss motives.
War Department records for Harold H. Neff (RG 107, Entry 160). These records again confirm the hostility of the War Department, and especially Under Secretary Patterson to the Swiss position.
