Public Papers of the Presidents

Official annual compilation of Presidential papers and transcripts issued by the Office of the Press Secretary.  Coverage begins with the Herbert Hoover administration (1929- ).  The papers of Frankling Roosevelt often are omitted from compilations. 

Compilation of Presidential Documents

"Consists of the Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents and the Daily Compilation of Presidential Documents which are the official publications of materials released by the White House Press Secretary."

"Between 1965 and 1976, only selected press releases from the Weekly Compilation were contained in the Public Papers. Beginning in 1977 with the administration of Jimmy Carter, no editing has been done, and all press releases have been included in the Public Papers since that time."
