"On the Writing of History", 1895 September
Collection Description & Creator Information
Baker's papers contain materials collected for his biography of President Woodrow Wilson and related to the Paris Peace Conference (1919-1920), which he attended as Director of the American Press Bureau, and include correspondence, publications, photographs, and newspaper clippings. The papers on Wilson are predominately related to his presidency and decisions regarding World War I, but also include information on his tenure as governor of New Jersey and his time at Princeton University. Papers on the Paris Peace Conference are largely composed of meeting minutes of several committees and also document the debate regarding the formation of the League of Nations.
