      Earlier this year, the Andrew W. Mellon foundation gave Brent — the
      editorial director of Yale University Press' "Annals of Communism
      Project" — a $1.3-million grant to develop a digital documentary
      edition of Stalin's entire personal archive, encompassing some 40,000
      files.

      Stalin has been portrayed as both the cruelest of tyrants and the
      brilliant orchestrator of the USSR's Cold War industrialism. Thanks to
      the donation, scholars from around the world will have double-click
      access to such things as Stalin's World War II letters to and from
      President Franklin D. Roosevelt, his post-war plans for suspected
      Soviet dissenters, and his private thoughts on colleagues from Lenin to
      Trotsky.
