Tobacco Control Archives: Brown and Williamson Collection

The Digital Library of the University of California--San Francisco has made scanned images of their Brown and Williamson Tobacco Archive available on the Web. The documents consist primarily of scientific studies on the addictive nature of nicotine and other health effects of tobacco smoke. The materials have been the subject of a suit in San Francisco Superior Court in which Brown & Williamson sought to permanently remove the disputed material from the Library. On May 25th, 1995 the Superior Court ruled that these documents should be made available for public review. (Subsequent appeals to the Court of Appeals and the California Supreme Court were rejected.) The collection includes documents from 1957-1991 inclusive. It can be searched or browsed, and an archival history and description are available. The collection is also available on CD-ROM for a fee. Order forms are available at the site.
