African American Archives provides over one million pages of original historical documents pertaining to the African American experience over several centuries, and is richly-detailed with narratives and quantitative data alike. The earliest materials in this collection come from Essential Records Concerning Slavery and Emancipation from the Danish West Indies (1672-1917).
U.S. Bureau of Investigation Case File Archives covers case files from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which until 1935 was called the Bureau of Investigation (BOI). With over 2.2 million pages of original historical documents, the archives provide a fresh insider’s perspective to the history of this time period.
World War II Archives contains over half a million pages of original historical documents compiled from collections at the National Archives, offering a wide range of materials chronicling events during the Second World War, providing an in-depth perspective of military activities while also documenting the lives of individual military personnel on land, in the air, and at sea.
