Topical Research Files

The Eisenhower Presidential Library is one of 13 Presidential Libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. They preserve the documents and artifacts of our Presidents, providing insight into the times in which these Presidents lived and served the nation. The Eisenhower Presidential Library consists of approximately 26 million pages of historical records and papers, 335,000 photographs, 768,000 feet of original motion picture film, 70,000 artifacts. When researchers visit, it may take days or weeks to find the documents that are key to the topic they are researching. However, the archivists and educators at Eisenhower Presidential Library have created multiple student research files that contain several key primary documents for each topic. Some of these topic files will also include photographs from the Library's holdings as well as other suggested secondary sources or helpful links.
