Description:

Housed at Jefferson's University (otherwise known as the University of Virginia), it makes sense that the Miller Center of Public Affairs would be located at such a distinct institution. With a mandate to "gather new knowledge about the American presidency and our government", they have created six different initiatives to complete this task. They include a massive collection of oral history materials gleaned through presidential recordings and interviews as well as their substantial series of publications. While some of these materials have been transcribed and are available online, the real treat here is the archived editions of the Miller Center's Forum Program. While there are over 1900 programs available dating back to the start of the Forums in 1977, only the last one hundred or so can be viewed online here. There are some real gems here, including panel discussions on such topics as civil renewal and the legacy of Sandra Day O'Connor.
