Dear Ms. Aziminezhadan,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
For documents relating specifically to the release of U.S. Hostages, we suggest you begin by contacting the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Some of their records on this topic are already available online through the National Archives Catalog. They may have additional records not yet online. For information regarding the hostage crises and U.S. negotiations with Iran prior to the Reagan presidency, contact the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum via email at email@example.com. They also have some of their records on this topic available online through the Catalog.
We searched the the National Archives Catalog and located Records of Sheldon J. Krys Relating to Iran Hostages, 10/12/1977 - 5/14/1985, #3290 - MISCELLANEOUS: PIS -- Iran Hostage Release, Research Files Relating to the Iran Hostage Crisis Negotiations, 1980 - 1981, and Human Rights Files, 1962 - 1983, and Subject Files of Edmund S.

We also located Records Relating to Hostages in Iran, 11/4/1979 - 4/13/1981 in the Records of Interdepartmental and Intradepartmental Committees (State Department) (Record Group 353). The General Records of the Department of the Treasury (Record Group 56) includes Records Relating to Iranian Hostage Negotiations, 1979 - 1981 and Chronological Files Relating to Iranian Hostage Negotiations, 2/22/1979 - 1/19/1981, and Subject Files , 1978 - 1981.

To access the remainder, please contact National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Because many of these series are restricted in full or in part, it may be necessary to request some of these records under the Freedom of Information Act.
In regards to photographs, we searched the National Archives Catalog and located 122 photographs relating to the Iran Hostage Crisis that have been digitized and are available online through the Catalog. We also located three series titled Portraits of Americans Held Hostage in Iran, 1979 - 1980, Photographs Related to the Release and Homecoming of the American Hostages Held in Iran, 11/1979 - 4/1981, and Prints of U.S. and Foreign Dignitaries, and Diplomatic Events and Facilities, 1955 - 1993 in the General Records of the Department of State (Record Group 59) as well as USIA Correspondent and World Photographs, 1/1964 - 12/1982 in the Records of the U.S. Information Agency (Record Group 306).

The Department of State may have additional records on this topic. You can search the Virtual Reading Room for documents that they have already released. You also can request documents from them under the Freedom of Information Act.
