Keeping America Informed: The U.S. Government Publishing Office: A Legacy of Service to the Nation 1861-2016

Keeping America Informed: The U.S. Government Publishing Office: A Legacy of Service to the Nation 1861-2016The publication of this revised edition of Keeping America Informed is appropriate to this occasion, incorporating as it does the work of a robust historical program that has shed new light on key stories from our past, notably GPO’s close connection with President Lincoln, the agency’s experience with segregation during the Jim Crow era, a long-forgotten proposal to develop a Government paper mill, an analysis of how big GPO truly was in terms of its equipment and machinery, and a close-up look at GPO’s production of the edited transcripts of the Presidential tapes during the Watergate crisis of the early 1970’s. These and other narratives are now documented here, along with additional images from GPO’s extensive photographic library.
