The Foreign Relations of the U.S. Series Marks its 150th Anniversary

December marks the 150th anniversary of the Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series. First published in 1861, the series has become a leading example of governmental openness and embodies the U.S. Government's commitment to responsible transparency. Over the past 150 years, Foreign Relations evolved to become the official documentary history of U.S. foreign policy decision-making and major diplomatic activity. Foreign Relations volumes contain documents from Presidential libraries, Departments of State and Defense, National Security Council, Central Intelligence Agency, Agency for International Development, and other foreign affairs agencies as well as the private papers of individuals involved in formulating U.S. foreign policy. The most recent releases cover the Nixon era.

Foreign Relations can be accessed in print in the government documents section of the Schwob Library or online at the U.S. Department of State, Office of the Historian website: http://history.state.gov/historicaldocuments

For additional information, please Ask a Librarian or call 706-562-1492.

Happy Discovery! Happy Holidays!
