Collections with Divisional Holdings
American Committee for Devastated France Records
The collection contains annual reports, minutes, records of account, promotional pamphlets and several news clippings praising the work of the ACDF. A report by an unknown author chronicles the establishment of École de Scoutisme, and recommends facilitating “the scout movement of France.” Approximately half of the collection consists of the correspondence (1920-1926) of ACDF treasurer Alexander C. Humphreys. The letters and telegrams document exchanges between Humphreys and several members of the Executive Committee (especially Chairman Anne Morgan) on funds allocation.
Woodrow Wilson Collection
The Woodrow Wilson Collection consists of Wilson holdings which have been acquired by the Princeton University Library Department of Special Collections gradually over many years by purchase and gifts from many sources. The collection is rich in material prior to Wilson's presidential years, although it is not limited to this period; researchers will find materials documenting both the public and private life of Woodrow Wilson.

William H. Walker Cartoon Collection
Consists of approximately 1000 pen-and-ink drawings for cartoons which Walker published in Life magazine between 1894 and 1922. Walkers images touch on topics including the presidencies of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, the invasion of the Philippines, the rise of the railroads, voting rights, political corruption, isolationism, xenophobia, World War I, womens rights, child labor, strikes, and colonialism. Walkers largest topic of satire revolved around domestic political policy. The melting pot theory became a major area of Walkers exploration.
Western European Theater Political Pamphlet Collection
Contains pamphlets published in Europe during and immediately after World War I. They
cover a broad range of topics including the economy, the press, the military, arms,
territorial disputes, and others. The collection also includes speeches, sermons,
bulletins, calendars, and songbooks.

Roger Nash Baldwin Papers
The Baldwin Papers consist mainly of typescript and manuscript documents, including personal correspondence, business correspondence, memoranda, published and typescript articles, manuscripts and notes for speeches, notes from travels, and printed material. There are also a considerable number of photographs and an album presented to Baldwin at the Thirtieth Anniversary of the ACLU, on February 22, 1950.
Robert Lansing Papers
With the exception of a small number of sketches and photographs, the Lansing Papers consist exclusively of typescript and manuscript material, including letters, telegrams, memoranda, essays, addresses, and diaries. While this material documents many of Lansing's concerns, particularly in his capacity as a lawyer, writer, and public official, there are significant lacunae. Among Lansing's official and personal papers, some years are entirely unrepresented while others are virtually so. Enclosures referred to in letters are often missing.
