Representing nearly half of Hoover's archival holdings, North American collections focus on US and Canadian involvement in international conflicts, foreign relations, laissez-faire economics, political groups and movements, intellectual history, peace, education, émigré affairs, nuclear energy, and arms control. While some earlier materials are present, the bulk documents the 20th and 21st centuries, with a collecting emphasis on contemporary issues.
