The Nicaraguan collections are one of the largest Latin American resources in the archives. The majority concern the Sandinista government in the 1980s and the contra movement that waged war against the Sandinistas. Included are papers of Sandinista officials, materials documenting censorship of the opposition newspaper La Prensa, and records relating to the contra organization, Resistencia Nicaragüense.
