Sincerely Yours from the White House

Letters from U.S. Presidents

The Filson Historical Society's collections include correspondence from United States presidents spanning the last two and a half centuries.

Some of these letters represent matters of state, while others simply reveal a president's personal interests and details of everyday life. Some are official documents bearing the weight of presidential seals and signatures, others simple notes of appreciation or reminders of appointments. All add to our understanding of who these men were and how they contributed or reacted to the eras in which they lived during their time both inside and outside the White House.

This exhibit shares many of the letters from the Filson's Presidents' Papers collection.
