This State Department publication states:

On January 5, 1949, President Truman issued confidential Executive Order No. 10026-A, effective January 1, 1949, providing for continued assistance by the United States to the maintenance of the political and economic stability of the Republic of Korea. Under the terms of the Executive Order, the Economic Cooperation Administrator was instructed to take over the relief and rehabilitation program carried on by the Department of the Army in Korea since 1945. The Secretary of State was instructed to assume responsibility for information and educational-exchange activities in Korea previously carried on by the Department of the Army.

It goes on to mention a statement on page 84 in the Department of State Bulletin of January 16, 1949, which can be seen here, with basically the same info. So the substance of at least part of the order was made public that same day (Jan 5), but not the text of the order apparently.



This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
