Robert S. Elegant Collection

The Robert S. Elegant Collection was donated in 1976 by Mr. Robert S. Elegant, former head of the Los Angeles Times bureau in Hong Kong. The collection covers the period of the Chinese Cultural Revolution from 1966 to 1971, and most of them are in English.

The collection contains the assorted files of news releases from the Associated Press, some clippings of Hong Kong newspapers and magazines, transcripts from the news broadcasts of some of China’s radio stations, and open reel audiotapes.
