Archival history
The black and white prints of RFE/RL were donated to OSA by the Hoover Institute, California in year 2015. The images are duplicates of those held at Hoover. The originals, and most probably the negatives are with the donor as well. OSA only received the paper prints with captions, and digitized the entire collection in year 2018.

Content and Structure

Scope and Content (Abstract)
Over 1000 photos of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's activities, mostly from after the 1971 scandal threatening with closure. Propaganda and exhaustive documentation from the Cold War period.
Scope and Content (Narrative)
Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty started a several-year-long campaign of self-promotion to prove to the US legislation that what they were doing was useful. RFE/RL embarked on creating the image of a radio with a strong mission, even an obligation, to bring objective, truthful and unbiased information to the captive nations behind the iron curtain.
RFE/RL's operation was threatened to end when in 1971 it turned out that they were financed by the CIA as opposed to what had been communicated to the American public that they were a private company funded by contributions.
While these images were made for propaganda purposes, their documentary value is unquestionable. The pictures show the facilities of RFE/RL in Munich and New York, and the transmitter antenna systems at Holzkirchen, West-Germany and Gloria, outside Lisbon. They also document the work and the conditions at various sections at RFE/RL, from the Central Newsroom to the Monitoring Unit, Library and Archives; from the Russian Unit to the Bulgarian, Czechoslovak, Polish, Romanian and Hungarian Desks and their studios. Portraits of RFE/RL employees and distinguished guests are also part of the photo collection.

Man Operating aTransmission Recorder
Man, standing with his back to the viewer, operates a transmission recorder to archive programs. The equipment is old, possibly late 1930s. ORIGINAL CAPTION: At each of RFE's three transmitter sites Holzkirchen (near Munich), Gloria (near Lisbon) and Biblis (near Mannheim) - these special tape recording machines are in constant operation. Part of RFE's licensing agreements with the German Federal Republic and with the Portuguese Government, these machines record every sound transmitted by Radio Free Europe. Official time signals from the two host governments are fed continuously into the tapes, thus making it impossible to alter them in any way. Shortly after the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 RFE sent 5 kilometers of these tapes to Bonn and to the Council of Europe at Strasbourg, where their contents were translated from Hungarian into German and French respectively. Following this, Chancellor Adenauer stated publicly that "the charges against RFE in connection with the Hungarian Revolution are not founded on fact." The Council of Europe came to a similar conclusion.

Old Man with Typewriter
An elderly man at work in the corner of an office. He wears office clothes and is writing on a typewriter. He is looking into the camera smiling. There are newspapers, hand and type written as well as blank pages scattered on a desk. ORIGINAL CAPTION: n.a. RESEARCH BASED DESCRIPTION: The odd one in the collection. This is one of the rare, if not only, photos in which we see a smile. All the other men – and the few women – in the rest of the photos documenting – or rather propagating – work at Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty are earnest, tense, focused on their work, be it reading documents, listening to broadcasts or repairing some equipment. In contrast to this man, they never even look into the camera, do not interrupt for the sake of the photo whatever very important job they are doing. While the setting is the same – this man is at work on a typewriter, newspapers and other documents scattered all over his desk – no other picture has this kind of easygoing, almost intimate atmosphere, this moment of break from work, of looking up and turning a friendly face. One wonders if this photo is included only by mistake in the collection.

Overall View of the Central News Room
Busy news room with seven men and one woman working in office clothes. There are work stations along the walls, with typewriters. In the middle of the room there are two aisles of telex machines with long papers hanging out of them, a cart, a wooden box stacked with pages, and a basket underneath it with rolls of paper. Lots of pages pinned up on the walls. On the far wall there is a world map and a clock reading 5 minutes to 4. Cf.

ORIGINAL CAPTION: n.a. RESEARCH BASED DESCRIPTION: In her PhD dissertation, Susan Haas writes that similarly to other Western news organizations, RFE was almost entirely male, even as late as in the 1980s. Moreover, women were typically typists, and very few made to editor. The general atmosphere is remembered by a one-time employee of RFE: “[Another] New Zealander we had was a lovely, lovely gal, good and competent. But the thing was, she wore miniskirts, and when I was in my office next to the newsroom, I would always know when she reached over to get a piece of copy. All the typewriters stopped. That’s how I knew that she was active in the newsroom. She stayed six to eight months. She was moving her way through Europe. When the typewriters went silent, I used to say to myself, ‘Christ, she’s in there!’ Going through the first 50 or so Rolodex cards carrying the photo of and some basic information on RFE employees (names A to C), such as date of hiring and job/position, one finds that out of 54 persons a mere 12 were women, though with quite varying ranks. However, the way RFE is (re)presented in this photo and the rest of the series, the radio seems to have been a pure macho world where only men do important things worth photographing: in the first 50 images of Box 1 (housing 125 photos), there are as few as 9 women in contrast to 107 men. These women, but for one, are unimportant tiny figures in the background. All 116 are white. It is the 70th photo (HU OSA 300-1-8:1/70) where the first (and only) black man appears – incidentally, the other person in the picture is a woman.

The talks were conducted in the building where the American mission for the United Nations is housed, where Gromiko appeared in the company of the Soviet ambassador to Washington Dobrinin and other official persons. June 2 Vance will meet in New York with ministers of foreign affairs of a number of countries, including minister of foreign affairs of the CPR [Chinese People’s Republic] Huang Hua, who participate in the work of the Special Session of the Assembly General of the United Nations on disarmament.” Huang Hua is specifically mentioned because of the very tense Sino-Soviet relations at that time. The Soviet Union accused China of collaborating with the West to increase the atmosphere of fear and undermine disarmament and push the world into war. At the same time China said that Moscow was the next world war threat with its maneuvering in Africa and continued armament notwithstanding the international disarmament efforts, while the US declared that if the Soviet Union does not abandon its activities to gain control in Africa causing Soviet-American relations to deteriorate, Washington will seek closer ties with Beijing.

FBIS monitored, translated, and republished selected news and commentary from foreign political speeches, radio and television broadcasts, news agency transmissions, newspapers, and periodicals. These translations, or transcriptions in the case of English language materials, make up the Daily Reports. Since FBIS primary users - US government officials - determined which stories were included, the material is wide-reaching, with an emphasis on political, socioeconomic, scientific, technical, and environmental information. The translations were published as quickly as possible - usually within a few days of original publication - in a series of daily reports.

ORIGINAL CAPTION: Munich - These monitoring antennas at Schleissheim outside of Munich capture radio and television transmissions from the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, feeding the sound to the Munich headquarters of RFE/RL, where trained monitors keep the Radio's news, research and programming staffs up-to-the minute on what the opposition is - and is not - saying. A separate section screens this huge input for stories of possible cross-reporting value. Did Radio Bucharest mention Transylvania? Then Hungary would be interested.

Curtain Antennas at Holzkirchen
Several antennae in a field photographed from a distance. Among the thin and high antennae there is one shorter and more robust one. In the middle there are a few station buildings. In the background there is a line of hills. ORIGINAL CAPTION: "Curtain" antennas at Holzkirchen, RFE transmitter site 18 miles south of Munich. All RFE programs are broadcast into the five target satellite countries through 28 transmitters located in three chief transmitter stations: Biblis, roughly 200 miles northwest of Munich (213,000 watts). Holzkirchen, (135,000 watts) and Lisbon, Portugal (813,500 watts). By comparision: in the United States the Federal Communications Commission does not license radio stations of more than 50,000 watts capacity. The theory of RFE broadcast transmission is that many varied-capacity transmitters will combat Communist jamming more successfully than a few very powerful transmitters. If one transmitter wave-length is jammed, the listener has his choice of several other wave-lengths over which he may receive RFE's broadcasts.
