Alternative Titles
ProQuest History Vault, American Politics and Society
Description

An exceptional compilation of documents from the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon presidencies as well as records from federal agencies ranging from the EPA to the FBI. Issues covered span women's rights, environmental issues, urban renewal, rural development, tax reform, civil rights, space exploration, international trade, the War on Poverty, and the Watergate trials. Kennedy files include documents from the 1960 presidential campaign, correspondence between the president and federal personnel, Pierre Salinger's daily press briefings, transcripts of presidential press conferences, and oral histories of key Kennedy cabinet members as well as senators and representatives.

The Johnson administration collections chronicle the seven years of tumult and unparalleled change from the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 and the War on Poverty to civil unrest and fighting in Vietnam. Of particular note is the Confidential File from the Johnson White House Central Files.

Nixon administration materials consist of Nixon's White House files as well as a collection of the official transcripts of proceedings in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in the four major Watergate-related trials.
