Committee of Concerned Scientists records, 1970-2006, bulk 1974-2005

Series II: Refusenik Closed Case Files, 1974-2005

The Committee's efforts to help refusenik scientists are documented primarily through correspondence; CCS members updated each other on developments in each case, sent letters of protest to Soviet government officials, and corresponded with the refuseniks themselves through letters that sometimes had to be smuggled out of the USSR. These cases were closed when the refusenik's plight found resolution--usually, they were able to emigrate.

Materials are filed alphabetically by surname, with a small number of general files at the beginning of the series.
