from individuals who worked with Wilson, including politicians and government
officials, military leaders, and individuals from Princeton University, with
information about Wilson as part of Baker's research for the biography. 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.
Divided into six sections: General Correspondence, Letters from Woodrow Wilson,
