American Politics and Government

Includes collections relating to U.S. statesmen and diplomats, presidential candidates, political journalists, and policy organizations. While the bulk of this topic covers the 20th century, a small number of collections document earlier history and issues such as women’s voting rights. Of special interest are the collections of the Council on Foreign Relations, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Association on American Indian Affairs Records, as well as collections relating to Allen and John Foster Dulles, George Kennan, and James Forrestal.
