The Estonian collections relate to that country’s first period of independence and its foreign relations during the interwar years. Among these, the Pusta Papers are especially important, as they concern the Soviet annexation of Estonia and efforts to keep the cause of Baltic independence alive during the Cold War. Other collections document political repression in the Soviet period and the renewal of Estonian sovereignty in 1991.
