Repository description (CRHP): United States domestic and foreign policy and party politics in the mid-1970s are the main subject focus of the collections. Gerald Ford's private life and public career since his election to Congress in 1948 are collateral topics.
The Ford Library acquires interview records created by journalists, historians, political scientists, memoirists and their research assistants, independent writers, and others. We are very grateful to these donors for making their research materials available to future generations. The Library itself has conducted a modest number of interviews, usually with Gerald R. Ford Foundation funding.
The audiovisual holdings contain 314,800 still photographs, 1265 hours of videotapes, 800,000 feet of film, and 2,100 hours of audiotape.
Repository Notes (CRHP): A large number of additional interview records, not listed and not yet open to research, are at the Library in unprocessed or partly processed collections. Researchers should contact the library directly regarding these collections. The library also holds White House Communications Agency audiotapes and network news videotapes.
