Interesting Online Reads about U.S.-USSR Educational & Cultural Exchanges

“The Cultural Agreement” [ Chapter 3] from Cultural Exchange and the Cold War: Raising the Iron Curtain (2003) by Yale Richmond. 

“U.S, Soviets OK Cultural Exchanges” by Peggy Pagano in the August 6, 1986 Los Angeles Times.

Advertisement from the July 17, 1987 The Washington Times.  The advertisement argues against U.S.-Soviet exchange agreements on all levels and subjects to prevent the "Sovietization (internationalization) of the American classroom."  They crunched a lot of text into what appears to be a full-page advertisement.

“The Scientific and Cultural Exchange” by the Central Intelligence Agency [approved for release 1994, CIA Historical Review Program, 18 Sept 1995].

“U.S.-U.S.S.R.  Interacademy  Exchanges” (1967, November) by Lawrence C. Mitchell  in Applied Optics, Vol. 6, No. 11.

“Report: U.S. vs. Soviet Exchange” (1959, October) by Kenneth Holland [President, Institute of International Education] in The Rotarian.

"U.S.-USSR Cooperation in Health-the First 5 Years" (1978) by Robert Fischer in Public Health Reports.

U.S.-Soviet/Russian academic & cultural exchanges have been an interest of mine for some time now and I have previously posted to IHEC Blog which you can read here and here.
