The Truman Library has accumulated approximately 400 collections of President Truman's relatives, friends and associates. This collecting effort is still active, and it is hoped that several fine collections will be added to this list in future years. A few collections on the list have not yet been processed and are consequently not open to research. These are identified with a bold NP. Many small collections - many of them only a few pages in volume - are not included in this list. Researchers who wish to inquire about any of these collections may e-mail us.

To obtain electronic or hard copies of finding aids that are not available online, please e-mail us.

The online finding aids are intended to provide information to researchers intending to make a research visit to the library, not as a means of selecting materials for mail order photocopying. The folder titles are typically not specific enough for that purpose.
