Other correspondence is related to Baker's own involvement in politics, including his criticism of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidential policies and his service to the State Department, and correspondence from President Woodrow Wilson about Baker's various writings on his career. Also included are memoranda, copies of letters and photographs, pamphlets, papers, and newspaper clippings about Wilson's entire life, including as a student at Princeton University and his political career, and publications of articles and speeches by Wilson.
