Serial issues, pamphlets, leaflets, bulletins, and newsletters issued by Iranian political groups in exile relating to political conditions in Iran.
Beginning in 1983, Edward A. Jajko, at the time the Middle East curator of the Hoover Institution Library & Archives, set about the task of "gathering materials issued by or related to individuals and groups classifiable as belonging to an Iranian opposition, whether anti-Shah, anti-Khomeini, or otherwise in some form of political opposition" (Jajko, 1986). Between 1983 and 2006, the archives accumulated a wide variety of printed resources from the Hoover Library, University of Texas Library, and individual private donors. An initial inventory of the Middle East Collection in the Library and Archives was written and published by Jajko in 1986. The following finding aid reflects the collection as whole and does not make distinctions between the original accession and later additions.
86 manuscript boxes, 1 oversize box (36.2 Linear Feet)
