NARA would be the natural place to go, only an employee started selling out
from their holdings on eBay a few years back, apparently condoned by ARSC.
Hence we do not really know what they have.

Best wishes,

Can you tell us more about the collection at the Biblioteca de Catalunya? It looks like the Office of International Information was begun in 1946; here is some information about the program:

While the Voice of America has been under various government agencies, including the State Department, it is not necessarily Voice of America content, but may have originated with other public diplomacy and information efforts. The museum in Ohio, to my knowledge, focuses on the broadcast history of the Ohio site rather than large collections of content.

For content, the U.S. National Archives and Record Administration is likely to have content of this nature associated with Record Group 59:

Many of these may still be in unprocessed holdings, and the contents accessible on the NARA site don't reflect the extent of the holdings, so it is important to contact them for more information.

Dear colleagues,

The Biblioteca de Catalunya holds a collection of 16-inch radio transcriptions recordings from the USA's Department of State. Office of International Information. International Broadcasting Division, together with other similar sound recordings coming from Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Tanger’s Pan American Radio.

We are looking for a sister collection anywhere to complete the information about them. We would have thought that the Library of Congress would be the proper place to preserve them, but we could only find a few.

Could you please help?

Thank you in advance.
