Library & Archives
The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library houses a unique collection of materials by and about Wilson, his life, times, and legacy.
Research at the Library is by appointment only to ensure a valuable and productive experience. Hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00 – 5:00. Please contact Elizabeth Shortt, Interim Archivist, firstname.lastname@example.org
Our archives house a variety of manuscript and photograph collections covering Woodrow Wilson's life and times including letters, diaries, scrapbooks, speeches, newspaper clippings, and articles addressing his family life, political career, and presidential administration.
Our Library contains important primary and secondary source reference materials, such as the 69-volume documentary edition of the Papers of Woodrow Wilson edited by Arthur S. Link. Other sources include works by those who knew Wilson best such as Edith Bolling Wilson, John Randolph Bolling, Stockton Axson, and Wilson's daughter Eleanor, to name but a few. The Library collection also contains memoirs of those who worked with Wilson in an official capacity and houses an array of official and non-official governmental volumes concerning the two Wilson administrations and World War I.
The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library has undertaken to obtain digitized copies of most of the writings of Woodrow Wilson and make them available in a searchable database. In partnership with other select repositories holding Woodrow Wilson documents, our goal is to make Wilson's papers available to scholars, citizens, and students of all ages.
