The information gathered, from ca. 1945–54, covers such subjects as the Soviet family; health, medicine, and doctors in the USSR; religion; and work conditions. The material became the basis for 2 books, both published by the Harvard University Press: Raymond Bauer and Alex Inkeles, The Soviet Citizen (1959) and R. Bauer, A. Inkeles, and Clyde Kluchohn, How the Soviet System Works (1956); and the data have also been used in many other works of the Harvard Project on the Soviet Social System. Some of the material is duplicated in the Russian Research Center holdings of the University Archives. At present there is no access possible to these files; the collection is closed until final disposition and organization of the holdings can be arranged and a manual for using the archive can be reproduced.
