These collections contain significant materials on politics and Haiti's relationship with the United States. Several collections focus on the US presence in Haiti, including the 1915 military intervention that led to a prolonged occupation by US troops. Other collections relate to politics, education, and human rights in Haiti during the dictatorships of François Duvalier and his successor, Jean-Claude Duvalier.
