Wright Commission in 1957

Wright Commission in 1957
I am working on a research project and am desperately trying to find the published report of the Wright Commission in 1957, also known as the Commission on Government Security. Their final report was published and transmitted to Congress in 1957, is there any way to get a copy either electronic or hard copy? Thank you.


Thank you for your question.


I have downloaded a copy of this report from our ProQuest Congressional database and saved it to our cloud storage (it is almost 850 pages). You should be able to access it from this link: https://myunt-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/g/personal/bobby_griffith_unt_edu/EWVKrBnyIIpMi1JtHpKIHAIBqWypc8MCD0QIgwiN5z8_qw?email=baronkm%40apsu.edu&e=V3eSlW

Let me know if the link doesn't work, and I will try sending it again.
