UST Smokeless Overview
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.
