The Nixon Years: new database of British gov't docs on Anglo-American relations, 1969-1974

Yale Library now offers access to the database The Nixon Years, 1969-1974.

The database "provides complete FCO 7 and FCO 82 files from The National Archives, Kew, for the entire period of the Nixon administration, 1969-1974. Top level Anglo-American discussions and briefing papers dominate this project. There is also a wealth of material on social conditions, domestic reforms, trade, culture and the environment. FCO and British Embassy analyses of US policy decisions, White House staff appointments and UN discussions, views on Europe, the deployment of F111 aircraft on US airbases in the UK and Nixon’s battles over funding from Congress, visits to the US by both Wilson and Heath, files on the internal situation in the US and domestic reform all feature strongly. There are detailed assessments of all the changes brought about by the Presidential Elections of 1972." Read more, and search or browse the database.
