The last of the tapes that secretly recorded former President Richard Nixon’s conversations during the Watergate scandal will be released Wednesday.

The tapes, being released by the Nixon Library, cover a crucial period of the Watergate scandal, as well as Soviet peace talks, Chinese diplomacy and Vietnam POWs.

They are the last recordings made in Nixon’s White House before a Senate investigative committee discovered his taping system. The recordings were made between April 9 and July 12, 1973, and are the final installment in the slow chronological release of over 3,000 hours of Nixon tapes.
