The Latvian collections span the period from the founding of an independent Latvian state in 1918 to the contemporary era. They pertain to Latvian diplomacy in the interwar years, the annexation of Latvia by the Soviet Union, and political repression under Soviet rule. Some materials concern Latvian refugees after World War II and the movement leading to renewal of Latvian independence in 1991.
