List of Holdings
It is all here: the story of our time--with the bark off.
This Library does not say, "This is how I saw it," but, "This is how the documents show it was."
There is no record of a mistake, nothing critical, ugly, or unpleasant that is not included in the files here. We have papers from my 40 years of public service in one place, for friend and foe to judge, to approve or disapprove.
I do not know how this period will be regarded in years to come. But that is not the point. This Library will show the facts--not just the joy and triumphs, but the sorrow and failures, too.
