Machine translation?[edit]

This article as it now stands reads like a machine translation of an article originally written in some other language. Parts of it read like gibberish, and it is silent on several crucial points: how did the archive fall into the hands of the OSS? (One of the sources the article links to implies that the archive was found by US forces at Offenbach near Frankfurt.) Where did it reside in the US and who had access to it there? (I believe the answer is that after 1948 it was held at the Russian Research Center at Harvard, which was then under the direction of Clyde Kluckhohn, with a small army of Harvard graduate students digging through it.) This article is badly in need of cleanup and fleshing out by someone knowledgable. (talk) 19:36, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
