Records Declassified in Eleven Hoover Collections

Thursday, August 6, 2015
Paul Henze Papers, Box 68, Folder 9, Hoover Institution Archives

Government records from eleven collections at Hoover Library & Archives have recently been declassified. The collections were created by diplomatic, military, and other government officials. Declassified materials include correspondence from former secretary of state George P. Shultz to Boutros Boutros-Ghali; memoranda and reports directed to commanding officers of the American occupation of Monschau during World War II; and documents related to terrorism and counterterrorism in 1950s Algeria.

Since 2001, a government team has been visiting the Hoover Archives to review security-classified records, which are then evaluated by the relevant federal agencies. Some records are released in full, others in part, and some remain classified. As government agencies continue their review, more declassified documents will become available in the future.

The relevant collections are listed below. The declassified materials are generally available at the end of the Online Archive of California finding aids.
