Memorandum for Mr. McCloy

I agree that the practicability of integrating Negro elements into white units should be followed up. It is further agreed that the results of the survey of the Information and Education Division should not be released for publication at this time, since the conditions under which the platoons were organized and employed were most unusual.

The Special Planning Division is making an overall study of postwar utilization of Negro troops. The material being used as the basis for the study was obtained from the several combat theaters. It is estimated that conclusions and recommendations will be completed about 1 October. I recommend the attached report be submitted to the Special Planning Division for consideration in connection with the overall study.
