Somewhat related: We have documentation here at Stanford related to the 
Nixon-Khruschchev "kitchen debate" at the 1959 Moscow Trade Fair.  It 
was captured and smuggled out of the Soviet Union by Ampex staff, and we 
have the a version of the recording given to us by Joseph Roizen, who 
was there.  You can read about what happened here 
Another strange intersection of Khrushchev and Silicon Valley ...
