Are all the papers in the Ulysses S. Grant collection original?

Answer

No, the collection is a Research Collection made up of original manuscripts and photocopies of originals held in other repositories and individual collections around the world. Former director Simon had copies made of these papers over a period of 46 years for USGA editors to edit for inclusion in the published Papers of Ulysses S. Grant. Together, the published and unpublished papers, plus photographs, artifacts, memorabilia, and Grant-related published books, make the Presidential Library the largest collection of Grant materials in the world.
