The RSC is the place to collect research materials documenting twentieth-century U.S. history. The core of the collection are the primary sources. Some are unique collections, most are reproduced from U.S. originals and put on microform or digitized. Periodicals, film and sound recordings offer additional sources and illustrations. Books and theses present research results.
