States from 1789 to 1909, published as House Document 671, 61st Congress, 2d session; an earlier edition was published as House Document 562, 55th Congress, 2d session.
The more important proclamations of Presidents Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt are given in the collections of their papers cited on page 314. The Roosevelt papers contain also many of the executive orders. Complete lists of proclamations and executive orders from March 1933 to January 1937 are given on pages 515-624 of Volume 4 (1935) of the Public Papers and Addresses of Franklin D. Roosevelt. There is no assembled index to all the proclamations, but citations to the Statutes at Large containing those prior to March 4, 1931, on certain subjects are given in Index to the Federal Statutes, 1789–1931, as follows:
Copyright privileges extended to citizens of foreign countries under acts of Mar. 4, 1909 (35 Stat. 1075), and Mar. 3, 1891 (26 Stat. 1110), as amended
Prohibition of exports under acts of Apr. 22, 1898 (30 Stat. 739), Mar. 14,
Changes in rates under acts of Sept. 21, 1922 (42 Stat. 941), and June
Minimum rates under act of July 24, 1897 (30 Stat. 203).
Reciprocal modifications under act of Oct. 1, 1890 (26 Stat. 612) --
Tonnage charges and duties:
Suspension of tonnage duties under Sec. 4228, Revised Statutes__
Suspension of tonnage charges under act of July 24, 1897 (30 Stat.
While treaties are proclaimed by the President, they are not included in the proclamation series. Forms of publication of treaties are discussed in Chapter 13. Appointments made by and with the advice and consent of the Senate are listed in the Congressional Record when the nomination is transmitted to the Senate. As a general rule appointments made during a recess of the Senate or those not requiring confirmation cannot be verified in any official publication. Appointments in the Foreign Service are listed in the Department of State Bulletin."
Not all the formal acts of the President are expressed in proclamations or executive orders. While the appointment of a clerk without regard to civil service rules is evidenced by an executive order, the pardon of a prisoner, the commutation of a sentence, and many other acts of the President are evidenced merely by endorsement of the recommendation and without formal publication.
Press statements issued by the White House are given in the published papers of President Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Roosevelt papers contain also many transcripts of the questions and answers at the presidential press conferences.
* Prior to July 1939 they were published in Press Releases issued by the State Department.
A list showing the places of deposit of the unpublished papers of the Presidents was inserted in the Congressional Record on July 13, 1939, during the debate on Senate Joint Resolution 118, which provides for the establishment and maintenance of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library, where the manuscript papers of Franklin D. Roosevelt are deposited.5
Since 1939 three presidential libraries have been established under the sponsorship of the federal government. Only two similar institutions, the Hayes Memorial Library in Ohio and the Hoover Library at Stanford University in California, had been established prior to 1939.
The Franklin D. Roosevelt Library at Hyde Park, New York, was established by a joint resolution of Congress passed in 1939, which provided for its acceptance and operation by the Archivist of the United States. Under the act of 1955, generally called the Presidential Libraries Act, the Harry S. Truman Library at Independence, Missouri, and the Dwight D. Eisenhower Library at Abilene, Kansas, have been established.
The Hoover Foundation recently announced that a library museum to house papers, books, and documents of Herbert Hoover will be built at the Hoover birthplace park in West Branch, Iowa. The documents now housed at the Hoover Library at Stanford University will be located here.
While not a presidential library, a John Foster Dulles library of diplomatic history is planned by the State Department and Princeton University as a tribute to the former Secretary of State.
