Overview

Collections of personal correspondence, writings, speeches, diaries and photographs of five leading members of the Progressive movement offering invaluable insight into the "machinery of reform" from early theorizing to practical legislation.

Individually and collectively, these men proved they were more than idealists by devising and carrying out major reforms to solve the problems caused by the growth of industrialization following the Civil War. The microfilm edition of their Papers, including much previously unpublished material, provides researchers with a vast source of primary and secondary material on the Progressives and their correspondents and devotees including Franklin D. Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, Clarence Darrow and Woodrow Wilson.
