The Hoover Institution is one of the leading repositories in the world to provide open access to the papers of spies and spy-catchers. Melita Norwood, Nikolai Khokhlov, Pavel Sudoplatov, Ryszard Wraga, Sir Robert Bruce Lockhart and Sir Paul Dukes may not be household names (nor should they have been, given their line of work), but their contributions to history have been singular. As evidence emerges from newly declassified sources, researchers return again and again to these collections to establish new connections, open new directions for study and discover new aspects of the effect of intelligence services on politicians and policy-making. Aside from the papers of actual agents, Hoover holds extensive research material on the subject of intelligence and its use and misuse.
