Archivist's Notes:

This collection is not a complete set of the trial records. It does not include the complete court records but does include a full set of the preparatory examination and documentary exhibits. For a detailed analysis of the trial see the collection of KARIS, T. The Treason Trial in South Africa: A guide to the microfilm record of the trial, Hoover Institute, Stanford University, 1965.

Digitisation of records:

The digitisation of the first part of the 1956 Treason Trial collection (except E & I) was made possible by a generous grant from The Atlantic Philanthropies. (July 2009)

The digitisation of the 1956 Treason Trial Evidence (E) and The Treason Trial Defence Fund (I) papers was made possible by a generous grant from Carnegie Corporation.

Sections F (Sydney Kentridge Papers) were not digitised.
