[The Presidential Libraries.]
Webb, John
There are seven Presidential libraries in various states of existence, from quite active to proposed: (1) Franklin D. Roosevelt Library, (2) Harry S. Truman Library, (3) Herbert Hoover Library, (4) Dwight D. Eisenhower Library, (5) John F. Kennedy Memorial Library (6) Lyndon B. Johnson Library and (7) Rutherford B. Hayes Memorial Library. Each Presidential library has as its heart "the Presidential records and papers donated or deposited by the President and by officials and friends associated with the President whose name the institution bears." The Franklin D. Roosevelt Library is the oldest, largest, most used, and seemingly best administered and most successful of the Presidential libraries. It is the model upon which the others have been based. An account of the development of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library is given. In the few short years of their existence the Presidential libraries have become among the most important depositories of private papers in the country. This is discussed in the second paper presented here. The final paper is concerned with the specific application of administrative matters -- budget, staff, building and equipment -- to the Presidential libraries (Other papers from this Institute are available as LI 002962 - LI 002969 and LI 002971 through LI 002976).
