Archival history
The materials were donated to OSA as part of the collection on RFE/RL Research Institute. During the processing work in 1990s they were assigned to “300-8 subfonds: Records of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Research Institute: Publication Department.” This subfonds is part of an effort to segregate the reports and journals produced by the Free Europe Committee, Inc., from the materials gathered by the RFE.

Content and Structure

Scope and Content (Abstract)
This subfond consists of two types of series, Reports and East Europe Publications.

Until March 1954, the reports and the publications were issued by the National Committees for a Free Europe (NCFE), the predecessor of the Free Europe Committee, Inc (FEC), and Free Europe Press (FEP).

While the reports are produced in national languages, the publications are in English and German and were open to subscription.
