As reported by the New York Times on October 17, 2018, the Library of Congress now holds the largest collection of President Theodore Roosevelt’s papers and includes 276,000 documents and over 460,000 digital images that date back to 1759. The collection began in 1917 when Roosevelt first sent items to the Library of Congress for “safekeeping.” These items later became a permanent gift from Roosevelt and the collection grew over the years from the contributions of relatives and a literary executor. The Library of Congress Roosevelt holdings are digitized and accessible online and include diaries, speeches, letters, and other documents. Other collections of Roosevelt’s papers are located at Harvard University Library and The FDR Presidential Library.
