Location of Original Presidential Papers

Presidential Papers Program

Public Law 85-147 gave the Library of Congress authority for the Presidential Papers Program, a program to preserve and make presidential papers accessible. The Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress houses the original papers of 23 presidents. The Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress indexed and filmed over two million manuscripts as part of this program. The indexes and microfilm reels are housed in many research libraries across the country.

The presidential papers collections are mainly composed of letters to and from the President. Also included are diaries, financial papers, applications for office, and other miscellaneous items. The collections are generally divided into series according to the types of papers (legal, financial, military, etc.).

The Library of Congress has begun to make the complete presidential papers available on the American Memory site. Documents include correspondence, letterbooks, diaries, journals, books, military records, reports and notes.

Presidential Libraries

Beginning with Herbert Hoover, each president has a "presidential library" which contains the papers and files of the respective president as well as correspondence of the presidents and their associates.

Papers (Public and Private) of Individual Presidents by chronology

Many of these collections are not government documents because they include private as well as public papers of presidents. Moreover, many of these collections are collected and published privately. Many papers are published in more than one publication, in which case, only larger or more authoritative publications are included. The following titles are mostly based on the bibliographies from the excellent Public and Private Papers by the Scripps Library, University of Virginia's Miller Center of Public Affairs.

Search tip: In the American University library catalog, search for the president's name as AUTHOR, e.g. Washington George.
