Thank you for contacting History Hub with your inquiry. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) does indeed have sources regarding U.S. relations with Iran in the time period you described. Among the record groups that may be of interest to you are several within the Records of the Department of State (Record Group 59), including Records Relating to U.S. Relations with Iran, 1947-1980 which can be found here, as well as records of U.S. relations from 1965-75. There are also country files for Iran for the years 1979 and 1978-79, as well as other years, within the Records of the U.S. Information Agency (RG 306). The General Records of the Department of Treasury (RG 56) has records related to the Iran Hostage Situation as well, which may be found here and here. In addition to NARA, several presidential libraries have records on Iran as well, including the Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan libraries.
These are just a sampling of the records that were retrieved during a search of NARA records. You may be able to find even more items pertinent to your research by searching the NARA online catalog, which can be found by following this link. Records from presidential libraries may be found through this catalog as well. Again, thank you for contacting History Hub, and best of luck in your research!
Thanks for your very helpful answer. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to you for using some of your time answering my questions.
When I click on the first link ( https://catalog.archives.gov/id/27022995 ), in the top of the page a text appear with this: "To obtain a copy or view the records, please contact or visit the National Archives and Records Administration location(s) listed in the Contact information below."
What do I need to do if I want to view the documents? Is it possible for you to do a (as far as you can) detailed explanation of that.
