Scope and Contents

The collection includes a small box labeled "United Nations Documents from the Personal Collection of Alger Hiss." Within the box are several letters written to Hiss concerning research and book reviews; one issue of United Nations News dated November, 1947; a page from  The Congressional Record (April 29, 1971); a small collection of booklets and pamphlets (1947-1966) relating to the United Nations; and two color snapshots of Alger Hiss. The collection also contains a personal photo album titled "House in Springs" with what appear to be family snapshots taken at several locations. There is a small envelope of loose snapshots. No one in the photos is identified.
