The Public Vaults Unlocked (Hardcover)
The Public Vaults Unlocked:
Discovering American History in the National Archives
Foreword by Allen Weinstein, Archivist of the United States
The Charters of Freedom are just the tip of a vast iceberg of records held by the National Archives. Millions of letters, memos, maps, drawings, photographs, films, and digital files from the three branches of the United States Government are permanently preserved by us, for us – the American people. The Public Vaults permanent exhibition in Washington, D.C. presents the depth, diversity, and magnitude of the Federal Government’s records. This book features more than 150 illustrated documents, photographs, audio transcripts, video stills, and installation shots of the interior of the exhibition. 176 pages.
