Farewell Richard Nixon

Hard to believe that 40 years ago, Richard Nixon resigned as President of the United States. Too young to remember the brouhaha? Read all about it by searching our catalog by subject for Nixon or Watergate. Follow the news as it happened by searching our ProQuest Historical Newspapers database.

Gain some perspective by reading books authored by Nixon and by reading and listening to current retrospective news reports in LexisNexis Academic.

We have a display of government documents surrounding Nixon’s possible impeachment in the new books area (more are available online in ProQuest Congressional and in LASR), the Government Printing Office has made available Nixon grand jury records, and the Nixon Presidential Library finished releasing tapes covering Nixon’s presidency.

But Watergate and impending impeachment were not all of Nixon’s legacy.
Read materials by Nixon by doing an author search in our catalog, looking at the Public Papers of the President (Case Ref Document AE 2.114: ), or browsing the Nixon materials at the American Presidency Project.
