Frank B. Kellogg papers, 1890-1942 [microform].

Correspondence, memoranda, speeches, background materials, clippings, memorabilia, and other papers of this U.S. senator from Minnesota (1917-1923), ambassador to Great Britain (1923-1925), secretary of state (1925-1929), and judge on the Permanent Court of International Justice (World Court) (1930-1935). Besides reflecting the issues and activities associated with these positions, the papers also provide considerable information about state and national Republican party politics, and about U.S. politics in general. Lesser amounts of material document his organizational memberships and activities, business affairs, career as St. Paul (Minn.) lawyer, and family matters. None of his official dispatches as ambassador or secretary of state are present. Papers from Kellogg's service as ambassador provide information on the European military, diplomatic, social, and economic scene; revision of the schedule of World War I reparations payments by Germany; and the official and social life of an ambassador.
