Today’s release is part of the Office of the Historian’s ongoing project, in partnership with the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections Center, to digitize the entire Foreign Relations series. The University graciously provided high quality scanned images of each printed book, which the Office further digitized to create a full text searchable edition. These volumes are available online and as free ebooks at the Office of the Historian’s website (https://history.state.gov/historicaldocuments). This is the latest in a series of quarterly releases, which will continue until the FRUS digital archive is complete.
