The William R. Kintner papers document the career of an important American foreign policy analyst whose career spanned the
Cold War. The bulk of the papers consists of correspondence, much of it deriving from Kintner's leadership role in the Foreign
Policy Research Institute, where he served first as director and then as president. In addition to routine correspondence
pertaining to the workings of the institute, the collection also has important exchanges of letters between Kintner and other
foreign policy experts, including Henry Kissinger and Walt W. Rostow. The papers also contain many of Kintner's writings,
including drafts of his monograph,
Soviet Global Strategy.
