Several linear feet of declassified documents from more than thirty-five archival collections at Hoover have been released since 2011. The collections, which are listed below, were created by diplomatic, military, and other government officials and consist chiefly of personal papers.

Accompanying the declassified documents is newly released unclassified material. Because this material was typically interfiled with the security-classified material, it was also examined by government reviewers. Collections in which only unclassified material is being released are noted on the list below. In addition, some British government records in the Chennault, Cooke, and Frederick papers were released after their declassification by the British Consul in San Francisco.

This release consists of original paper documents. Future releases of declassified US records will be as a combination of digitized documents and actual paper documents.
