If you don’t know about it, The Internet Archive is an absolutely wonderful and indispensable resource for serious researchers.
I have found many references there (as I’m sure my frequent readers know) that have been make/break points for dragging things back out of their hiding places in the closets of history and putting the real story back together.
Back where they can be seen and used again.
As part of my research into what the Guardian’s Office was doing in the 1970’s, I came across the fact that there were a number of Senate Hearings related to information leaked from various top secret projects such as MKULTRA. But, it went further than that, other government and military involvement in questionable practices was examined as well.
Most of these have been put on the internet but there was one that had not.
This one –
Biological testing involving human subjects by the Department of Defense, 1977: hearings before the Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research of the Committee on Human Resources, United States Senate, Ninety-fifth Congress, First Session on Examination of Serious Deficiencies in the Defense Department’s efforts to protect the Human Subjects of Drug Research, March 8 and May 23, 1977.
We obtained a copy –
And Mike scanned the ENTIRE thing (boy was that aproject), I prepared it for upload and now it’s fully available to humanity for the first time ever – uploaded here at the Internet Archive.
We did this as a way to give thanks to all the many people who spent that kind of time making books and things available that we used.
P.S. If you feel so inclined, get involved and contribute to the Internet Archive – it’s a great feeling!
