Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States

The Public Papers of the Presidents, which is compiled and published by the Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), began in 1957 in response to a recommendation of the National Historical Publications Commission. Volumes of the Public Papers of the Presidents from 1929 (Herbert Hoover) to 1991 (George H.W. Bush) published by NARA are made available as digital formats through GPO digitization efforts. Publications covering the John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush presidencies are available in multi-book volumes. The Public Papers of the President were not published by the National Archives for the Franklin D. Roosevelt presidency; these volumes were published by a private printer before the commencement of the official Public Papers series and are not currently available in govinfo.

Libraries are read.
Non-fiction is true.
PPL loves me
and I love them too.
The library takes me anywhere I want to go!

In addition to being one of PPL’s most enthusiastic and loyal supporters, Jessica is a local Portland, Maine writer and illustrator. Trained as a journalist with an eye for connection and a concise style, Jessica synthesizes complexity and repackages it in eye-catching, easy-to-digest formats.
