The volumes of The Documentary History of the Truman Presidency are a selection of topical documentary collections at the Truman Library known as the Student Research File. Library archivists created the Student Research File in response to the numerous requests for information on the same subjects. In order to preserve the original documents and to assist researchers in quickly locating the most important information, archivists identified and copied the most significant documents for specific topics from among the numerous record groups of the library_s holdings. The Documentary History of the Truman Presidency reproduces each of the volumes that comprise the Student Research File. Highlights include volumes on the dropping of the atomic bomb, the Potsdam Conference, post-World War II planning and recovery efforts, the communist takeover in China, the Truman Doctrine and the first years of the Cold War, the Marshall Plan, the Berlin Airlift, the Korean War, and the founding of the CIA. This series consists of 35 volumes.
