    I've read a few times that Reich had decades of research notes archived for release 50 years after his death and assumed it was probably at the Orgone Institute in Maine. But recently I tugged at this thread to find that they had been given to the Harvard Countway Library of Medicine. Here is a page about the history of the archive and those who have stewarded it since Reichs demise.

    I am curious what might be there and if anyone is interested in checking it out. It sounds like you would have to schedule a visit at the discretion of the library as the stacks and archive are not readily available to the public.

    If anyone is willing to check them out I would appreciate it if you could share what you find and provide a field report if possible on your discoveries. One thing that is extremely difficult to find specific information on is the orgone motor and any material related to this device would be invaluable to those interested in Reich.

    Anybody in the Boston metro area willing to give it a go?
