Legacy Tobacco Documents Library

The tobacco industry has had a long and checkered history in American business, law, and society. The Legacy Tobacco Documents Library (LTDL), a digital collection of the Tobacco Control Archives at the University of California at San Francisco, contains more than 8 million searchable documents "created by major tobacco companies related to their advertising, manufacturing, marketing, sales, and scientific research activities." Of particular interest to law students and researchers are links to litigation, legislation, health research, and advertising web sites, and to archive collections. The "Popular Documents" section provides a window on the tobacco industry in commerce and culture through decades of key materials documenting the industry's marketing, regulation, and public relations strategies.
