Correspondence, speeches, reports, radio broadcast transcripts, financial records, press releases, sound recordings, clippings,
and other printed matter, relating to communism, political conditions and civil rights in Cuba, Cuban influence elsewhere
in Latin America, and Cubans in exile in the United States, and especially to broadcasting activities of Free Cuba Radio from
the United States to Cuba. Includes a few later papers of Mariada C. Arensberg (later Bourgin), executive secretary of the
Cuban Freedom Committee.
The United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) set up the Cuban Freedom Committee in late 1960 to sponsor anti-Castro
radio broadcasts similar to those of Radio Free Europe. The committee appeared as a private activist group that solicited
donations for the operation, later identified as a funding conduit for CIA domestic operations.
