Henry Kissinger Will Donate His Papers to Yale
Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who helped steer Vietnam war policy, will donate his collection of some one million documents and objects covering his life as a diplomat, teacher and private citizen to Yale University.
Yale President Richard Levin said Wednesday the collection will enhance Yale’s archives of 20th century American leaders. Yale holds the papers of renowned former diplomats and alumni Henry Stimson, Dean Acheson and Cyrus Vance, as well as those of President Woodrow Wilson’s most influential adviser, Edward House.
Yale says Kissinger made a financial contribution to the digitization of his government papers held at the Library of Congress, so those papers will be available at Yale.
“With its remarkable array of academic programs and library collections in world affairs, as well as its established involvement with practitioners of international security and diplomacy, Yale will make a superb home for my papers,” Kissinger said
