Papers of Dwight D. Eisenhower, digital edition

Scholars of World War II and the Cold War have often made use of the exemplary print edition of Dwight D. Eisenhower's Papers, published by Johns Hopkins University Press. JHU Press has also created an electronic edition of the Eisenhower Papers, which the Stanford Libraries have recently purchased.

The online edition contains the entire 21-volumes of The Papers of Dwight D. Eisenhower including significant letters, memoranda, cables, and directives written or dictated by Eisenhower from the years prior to World War II through the full term of his presidency. This massive collection includes documents—many of them previously classified—from private collections and public archives in the U.S. and U.K., as well as papers from the Eisenhower Presidential Library.
