New Resource From Digital Scholarship Lab, University of Richmond, Maps International Trips of Presidents and Secretaries of State (1905-2016)

Here’s a new (and cool) interactive resource from the Digital Scholarship Lab, University of Richmond. It’s titled, The Executive Abroad.

From the website:

No sitting American president traveled outside the country before Theodore Roosevelt traveled to Panama in 1906 to see the construction of the Panama Canal. A century later Air Force One regularly carries the head of the executive branch to all corners of the world. The Executive Abroad maps the international trips of presidents and secretaries of state.
