(AP Government - Presidents)




















The Miller Center at the University of Virginia is a nonpartisan institute that seeks to expand understanding of the presidency. Its website provides numerous resources, including an extensive database of presidential speeches, historical analyses of presidential campaigns, and biographies of US Presidents and their cabinets.

The National Archives maintains links to Presidential Libraries from Herbert Hoover to George W. Bush. Many of the individual libraries have extensive collections of executive documents available electronically. Additionally, the Library of Congress website has its own outstanding collection.

The White House website provides the public face of the Presidency and includes both contemporary and historical documents, such as presidential briefings, biographies, and agendas.

The journal Presidential Studies Quarterly, published by the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, provides engaging material and outstanding recent scholarship.  Pick a year and an issue (it’s quarterly, there are four per year), and browse for titles that look interesting.
