U.S. Presidents and Vice Presidents Correspondence and Documents
Scope and Contents
Following the series of correspondence and documents for U.S. Presidents and Vice Presidents through the term of the Nixon/Agnew administration is a second series consisting of correspondence of presidents pro-tempore of the U.S. Senate and presidents of particular administrations which held a prominent place in the history of the United States. These include Elias Boudinot, president of the Continental Congress, Sam Houston, president of Texas, and Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America. This second series is also in chronological order according to term of office. Included with many of the letters, documents or autograph signatures are short biographical sketches, transcriptions of holograph items, and reproductions of photographs or engravings.
Language of Materials
Materials have been arranged chronologically according to presidential administrations, with President and Vice President of each term appearing together. Correspondence or documents of Vice Presidents who later served as President appear in separate folders. However, materials were not necessarily generated during an executive's term of office.
