Abstract: Agnese Nelms Haury (1923- ) a researcher, editor, author and philanthropist, has worked in and supported the work of others in a wide range of fields, including archaeology, anthropology, international affairs, Latin American studies, human rights, and the arts. She met Alger Hiss in the 1940s when he was president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and she was working in the Endowment's Publications Department. They became close associates and, from the time of Hiss's trials of the late 1940s and early 50s, she worked strenuously in the cause of his defense. The Haury Papers contain correspondence and subject files relating to the Agnese N. Lindley Foundation, the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona, The Nation Institute, and to research conducted by Tony Hiss, Bruce Craig, Jeff Kisseloff, John Lowenthal, and William A. Reuben on the Hiss defense and Hiss related research. The collection also documents the establishment of the Alger Hiss Archive, Alger Hiss Fellowship, and "The Alger Hiss Story" website.
