Sidney Verba Gennadii Boriak of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences presented a guide to the Central State Archive of Public Organizations of Ukraine to Harvard University in December. Sidney Verba (above), director of the University Library, accepted the unique gift, which is the first guide to a Communist Party archive to be published in the Ukraine.
