    Grover Cleveland Papers Available Online

    LOC Manuscript Division Tracker

      The Manuscript Division has announced that the microfilm edition of the papers of U.S. president Grover Cleveland (1837-1908) has been digitized and is now available online for the first time from the Library of Congress. Cleveland, the twenty-second and twenty-fourth U.S president, is the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms in office (1885-1889; 1893-1896). The collection, consisting of 192,602 images, contains correspondence, diaries, messages to Congress, speeches, writings, and other papers relating chiefly to Cleveland’s presidencies and presidential campaigns. While most of the collection relates to Cleveland’s first presidential administration, other subjects include his second administration, presidential elections, and Democratic Party politics. A substantial “additions” series of materials, acquired after the collection was microfilmed, will be scanned from the originals and incorporated into the online presentation in the future. An item level Index to the Grover Cleveland Papers was published by the Manuscript Division in 1965 when the collection was microfilmed, and remains a useful guide for the digital edition. See the catalog record to download a PDF.
