Document Collections

There are many individual document collections on TDO. Some of the collections are actually groups of collections, like all the industry collections, or all the Bliley documents. Often, though, you'll want to pick a specific collection and start searching for documents there. One collection, "All," is a special collection that searches everything on TDO.

Tobacco Products Control Act Trial

» 703 documents
Transcripts and documents from the 1989-90 defense of Canada's Tobacco Product Control Act, Montreal
UST Smokeless
(smokeless)
» 46,528 documents
This collection has not yet had the identifiers set, and is available for internal browsing only. The United States Smokeless Tobacco Company document collection was scanned by the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in 2003. The paper document collection is kept on site at the USSTC law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and Affiliates. The Roswell Park document acquisition took place through a third-party scanning operation. Oversized and bound volumes from the paper collection, as well as the USSTC audiovisual collection that is also housed at Skadden Arps we left out of the scanning process. This collection has been scanned; OCR’d, and has been digitally indexed through Tobacco Documents Online. The Smokeless Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement allows the tobacco industry signers the right to withhold documents can be claimed as attorney client privilege, attorney work product, as well as documents that pertain to possible “trade secrets.” We find that USSTC and representatives included within the definition of "privileged" most USSTC created documents related to product design, various nitrosamines, product ingredients, or additives. It is our hope that the documents that have been left in this collection by USSTC and Skadden Arps may be helpful to smokeless tobacco research.

Mayo Clinic
(mayo_clinic)
» 64,863 documents
The 1998 Minnesota settlement with the tobacco industry mandated that the companies provide public access to the millions of pages of their documents housed in two document depositories set up during the litigation. The public release of these documents is the legacy of the Minnesota trial as they have revolutionized tobacco control internationally by showing the internal workings of the cigarette manufacturers. The Mayo Clinic tobacco document collection contains documents from these depositories. Selected documents primarily, but not exclusively, relate to the tobacco industry's misleading campaigns surrounding secondhand smoke. The documents show that the cigarette manufacturers recognize that secondhand smoke and its health-related and public policy issues are a serious threat to its future viability. The tobacco industry also acknowledges that if smoke-free indoor air policies proliferate, smokers will consume fewer cigarettes each day, and many will stop smoking altogether. Both scenarios result in a huge financial loss for the tobacco industry. As evidenced by our own preliminary investigation, and the work of others, the documents reveal that the industry has undertaken an elaborate and aggressive campaign to thwart the dissemination of scientifically valid studies regarding the health effects of secondhand smoke and to skew public opinion regarding the health risks associated with secondhand smoke exposure. The industry employed highly sophisticated public relations techniques to deliver its messages on secondhand smoke, with the ultimate goal of marketing secondhand smoke as a “non-issue” to the public. The importance of this information cannot be underestimated for future educational, public health and regulatory initiatives.

Women's Collection from Marketing to Counter-Marketing
(women)
» 3,109 documents
The Women’s Collection: From Marketing to Counter-Marketing contains tobacco industry documents relevant to marketing of tobacco, with a particular focus on marketing of tobacco to women. The goal of the collection is to provide practitioners and researchers with documents like marketing and advertising research and strategy reports that can be used to develop counter-marketing materials, programs, and activities. The collection is an evolving one, expanding as new topics are identified. Currently, it contains documents relating to Philip Morris’ Virginia Slims and Virginia Slims King Sized products, Philip Morris’ PM21 campaign and its associated name change to Altria, the marketing of tobacco to Hispanic populations, and the use of opinion polls. Many of the documents in the collection have been indexed and abstracted. In addition to identifying, indexing, and abstracting the documents, we are analyzing and interpreting them to develop recommendations for counter-marketing to prevent or reduce smoking by women. This research project is funded by the National Cancer Institute, runs from 2003-2007, and is being conducted by the Academy for Educational Development.

PM. The documents are titled and coded, but not abstracted. The OCR text can be searched for key words or phrases. Exhibits can be located by searching the title field for the exhibit number as cited in Judge Kessler's opinion. They can also be located from the DOCUMENT CODE search space by reformatting the exhibit number as cited in the opinion. Thus, U.S. 21175 should be written in the DOCUMENT CODE field as US021175. Note that the spaces and periods have been eliminated and the numeric portion is zero filled to six places for numbers that are less than six digits in length
