Archives & Manuscripts

For a fun—and slightly different—kind of primary source, check out HKS's own Rothstein Political Buttons Collection.
Additionally, both Harvard's Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America and Houghton Library provide access to a wealth of primary sources within a short walking distance from the HKS campus.

For more in-depth suggestions for primary sources from archives, libraries, and museums, check the page with related resource guides. Of course, you may also schedule individual consultations with your HKS librarians to find primary sources for your specific project.
