Public Papers of the Presidents
Each Public Papers volume contains the papers and speeches of the President of the United States that were issued by the Office of the Press Secretary during the specified time period. The material is presented in chronological order, and the dates shown in the headings are the dates of the documents or events. Technically, this series only goes back to the Hoover Administration, but I've included information on earlier sets that also cover presidential papers -- though these are not as complete.
