Campaign Material
As per the Presidential Records Act, campaign material is considered “personal record” rather than “presidential record,” and as such is not housed within our facility.  You can contact the Clinton Foundation regarding whom you should speak to about this information.

For more information on the Presidential Records Act, including an in depth description of what is and is not considered record, you can visit here.
Another source you may find useful is the University of Arkansas Libraries Special Collections in Fayetteville.  The University recently opened a manuscript collection of their professor, the late Diane D. Blair, who was a close friend of the Clinton’s and senior researcher on the 1992 Presidential campaign.  You can find more information on that collection here. The finding aids are also available at here and here.

Presidential Transition or Post-Presidential Records
Neither Presidential transitional material from 1992 nor Post-Presidential material are considered Presidential record and, as such, are not included in the Clinton Library’s collection. Please contact the Clinton Foundation regarding who you should speak to about this information.

Vice President Al Gore Records and Contact Information
This facility does not house Vice President Al Gore’s records. Vice Presidential Records are in the possession of the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, D.C.  For further information, you may contact the Presidential Materials staff at presidential.materials@nara.gov.
