The Archive

The archive documents representing Prof. Krzysztof Skubiszewski’s legacy extend over ca. 20.5 linear meters. They comprise two main sections corresponding to two major strands in Krzysztof Skubiszewski’s research, diplomatic and public pursuits. The research part contains 40 document categories whereas a section given the working title of “The Realm of Politics” contains 274. Each category is comprised of between one and dozens of archive units. The categories are used as a starting point for compiling series in the legacy inventory. Certain individual categories form separate archive units.

The archive legacy is made up of Krzysztof Skubiszewski’s own papers, workshop documents, handwritten notes, correspondence, press clippings not associated with any specific thematic category as well as business cards, address books, postcards, other miscellaneous cards and notes and letters of congratulations.

A project of taking stock of Krzysztof Skubiszewski’s archive legacy is currently under way, carried out by Dr. Andrzej Choniawka. Once the stock taking is complete, a list of the documents will be posted on the Study’s website.
