The Roosevelt Libraries: A Global History

The RIAS is just one of four libraries that were set up to both further the legacy of President Franklin Roosevelt and support the study of the United States both within the US and abroad. Beginning in Hyde Park, New York, the story of the Roosevelt libraries takes us to China in the 1940s, the Netherlands in the 1980s, and Russia in the 1990s.

These four short essays provide an overview of the background and goals of each one.
