Presidential Tape Recordings Available Online

The University of Virginia's Miller Center of Public Affairs has a number of tapes and transcripts of presidential meetings and press conferences from Franklin Roosevelt to Richard Nixon available on their website for the general public to listen to online.

This is fascinating and important history right at your fingertips!

I wonder when (or perhaps, if) our more modern presidents' tapes will be released.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
