      Greetings! I need to find documents about US cultural diplomacy with former Yugoslavia (1945-1990). I don't know where to start, Can you suggest where to look?

          Dear Ms. Komesarović,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located three series titled Central Decimal Files, 1910 - 1963; the Subject-Numeric Files, 2/1/1963 - 1973; and the Central Foreign Policy Files, 7/1/1973 - 12/31/1979 in the General Records of the Department of State (Record Group 59) that include records pertaining to Yugoslavia. The filing manuals are available online. We also located 49 series in Record Group 59 that relate to Yugoslavia between 1945-1990. In addition, we located 14 series in the Records of the Foreign Service Posts of the Department of State (Record Group 84) that are from the US Embassy in Yugoslavia. Some of these records are digitized and are available using the Catalog. For information about and access to the non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.

As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
