Bureau of Public Affairs: Office of the Historian
The Office of the Historian is responsible, under law, for the preparation and publication of the official historical documentary record of U.S. foreign policy in the Foreign Relations of the United States series. It researches and writes historical studies on aspects of U.S. diplomacy for use by policymakers in the Department and in other agencies, as well as for public information. The office also makes recommendations to other bureaus regarding the identification, maintenance, and long-term preservation of important historical diplomatic records. Its outreach activities include educational videos for middle school and high school students, scholarly conferences, counseling private scholars and journalists on historical research issues, and responding to government and public inquiries on diplomatic history questions.
The Office of the Historian is pleased to announce the launch of its new website at http://history.state.gov.

Please visit the site to browse through our renowned Foreign Relations of the United States series, to explore the history of diplomatic relations country by country, or to read biographies of famous diplomatic figures.
