The collection includes correspondence, statements, memoranda, bulletins, reports, conference material, press releases, and
clippings relating to the civil rights of dissident scientists in various countries, especially the Soviet Union. Much of
the material concerns the cases of Andreĭ Sakharov, Yuri Orlov, and Anatoly Shcharansky.
The collection is open for research; materials must be requested in advance via our reservation system. If there are audiovisual
