Alternate Title: Assassination Archives and Research Center: Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities

This is the Church Committee collection of documents from the Assassination Archives and Research Center. "The Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, known as the "Church Committee" after its chairman Frank Church, conducted a wide-ranging investigation of the intelligence agencies in the post-Watergate period. The Church Committee took public and private testimony from hundreds of people, collected huge volumes of files from the FBI, CIA, NSA, IRS, and many other federal agencies, and issued 14 reports in 1975 and 1976. Since the passage of the JFK Assassination Records Collection Act in 1992, over 50,000 pages of Church Committee records have been declassified and made available to the public. These files contain testimony and information on U.S. attempts to assassinate foreign leaders, on the Church Committee's investigation of the intelligence agencies' response to the JFK assassination, and related topics. Also available is the report of the Rockefeller Commission, which preceded the Church Committee and issued a brief report on CIA activities within the U.S."
