Hoover Institution

Founded in 1919 by Herbert Hoover, later the United States’ thirty-first president, the Institution originated as a specialized collection of documents on the causes and consequences of war and revolution. Throughout the following decades, its archives attracted scholars who utilized it in their research. The Institution continued expanding to include specific research endeavors, leading to a vast accumulation of knowledge. Eventually, the Institution became one of the foremost centers dedicated to studying public policy. Today, its world-renowned scholars and policy-oriented research programs allow the Hoover Institution to make prominent contributions to the world marketplace of ideas defining a free society.
