Papers of Presidents Andrew Johnson, Chester Arthur and William McKinley Digitized and Now Available Online
The papers of Presidents Andrew Johnson, Chester Alan Arthur and William McKinley have been digitized and are now available online for the first time from the Library of Congress. These papers can be accessed both at the loc.gov website and on the new LOC Collections mobile app.
The three presidencies represented in these collections all began or ended with the trauma of a presidential assassination. The papers of each president, however, offer different types and levels of documentation as to how each man faced the challenges of his administration and the style in which he governed.
The Library of Congress holds the papers of 23 presidents. The digitization of these collections is part of a larger effort to make historical materials available online.
