Peacekeeping Forces

The archive holds the papers both of those who worked in the 1960s UN Operation in the Congo and of those who witnessed the upheavals during the period. They include the memoirs of Winifred Tickner, the wife of the UN Resident Representative, which detail the events surrounding the birth of the Democratic Republic. The other peacekeeping effort covered in depth is the United Nations Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) operation; papers concerning this include those of Field Marshall Lord Carver.
