Reddaway, Peter, collector.
This collection is part of the Andrei Sakharov Archives. Peter Reddaway, Ph.D., was on the faculty of the London School of Economics and Political Science (1965-1986), directed the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies (1986-1989), and was, until his retirement in 2000, professor of Political Science and International Affairs, and chairman of the Committee of the Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies at the George Washington University. Reddaway is one of the first Western scholars to study early documents of Soviet human rights movements as historical material.
The photographs and negatives were smuggled out of the USSR, and the professional photographer Mr. Inglis processed them in the London suburb of Dulwich. Many of the photographs were published in newspapers, magazines, and books, including The Chronicle of Current Events (Amnesty International, London), edited by Peter Reddaway. His first wife Kathy Reddaway helped to organize the photograph collection.
