A one-month research visit at the Rockefeller Archive Center (RAC) allowed me to examine records which document how the association of the Rockefeller Foundation (RF) and Nelson A. Rockefeller (NAR) with development projects in Haiti contributed to the process of Haitians identifying the United States, its citizens and institutions as viable resources for achieving both national and personal development goals. Records from the medical and humanities divisions of the RF, educational and economic development activities of NAR as Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs, and general correspondence between Haitians, NAR's office, and RF officers provide supporting evidence for a dissertation on how the study of international aid practices can teach us about the linkages between international relations and transnational behavior.
