Abstract: The Bureau of Public Secrets was formed in the early part of 1973 (preceded by "The Council for the Eruption of the Marvelous," "Contradiction," and "1044") was a self-described "neo-realist/quasi-situational" organization aimed at criticizing existing leftist movements and distributed publications mostly in the San Francisco Area.

The collection consists of flyers, periodicals, leaflets, pamphlets, and statements which document American situationist, anarchist and libertarian activity and criticism.
