The Alger Hiss Papers reproduced in this collection are from the State Department���s Office of Special Political Affairs. For the most part, they document the post-war planning process, Alger Hiss��� role, and work on the Dumbarton Oaks and United Nations conferences. The papers are organized as subject files. They include memoranda addressed to Hiss, occasional responses, correspondence, and associated reports. Much of the correspondence in this series consists of letters and reports that Alger Hiss was copied on. This record group provides excellent documentation about U.S. politics and policy as they related to the war, post-war planning, and the founding of the United Nations.
