About

Founded in 1919 by Herbert Hoover, the library and archives are among the world’s most important repositories for unique archival materials and rare publications on political, social, and economic change in the modern era.

Particularly strong are the holdings on Russia and the Soviet Union, Central and Eastern Europe, China, political and ideological movements, and the broadcast collections of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and the Firing Line television program.
