    Historical Note

    The Citizens Committee for a Free Cuba was a group of nearly forty private citizens, including several academics, which gathered data on all aspects of the Cuban Revolution in the 1960-1974 period and published reports in an effort to influence U.S. foreign policy toward Cuba.
    The collection is a rich source of testimonials from Cubans who had recently left their country. It is also a valuable source for people who are researching insurgency movements in any of the Latin American countries in that period.
