They were so helpful to me back as an undergrad. They don't just have State of the Union speeches; they have the transcriptions of almost every major presidential address. Great post Zarq.

Thank you, zarq. The A/V stuff in particular looks great--Fireside chats? FDR's 1933 inaugural address? Good stuff.

Thanks for the post. It's a great resource that I've used a thousand times in the course of my work without ever thinking much about how it came to exist.

Thanks for this post. I spent about three hours there last week and meant to search to see if it had been covered here before, but like many of my good ideas, I forgot (probably because I'm easily distracted and spend hours on websites)
