Another substantial collection on the history of Radio Free Europe has been donated to Hoover Library & Archives.  Andrzej Świdlicki, now living in London, has donated his collection of documents, publications, personal papers, and more than 400 voice recordings from the many years he spent working for RFE Polish Service broadcasting from Munich. The collection contains extensive files on Polish émigré activities in Europe and the United States. Now retired, Andrzej Świdlicki is completing work on a personal history of RFE’s Polish Broadcast Service; the book will come out in Warsaw later this year under the title:  Pięknoduchy, radiowcy i szpiedzy (Dreamers, Radio Guys, and Spies).
