This digital edition of the Foreign Relations of the United States from 1861 to 1960, with most volumes between 1900 and 1945. The digital version is not complete; there are volumes missing. This series contains the text of communications of the U.S. Department of State. It is both searchable and browsable.
This interface allows users to search over 85,000 state department documents, some of which were released through Freedom of Information Act requests. Keyword searching can be difficult because of OCR scanning of old paper documents.
The documents on this site are agreements reported to Congress under the Cast Act and are organized by signing date. These documents are largely unedited and subject to possible correction before their official publication in Treaties and other International Agreements Series (TIAS). In addition, this is not a complete listing of agreements and is a temporary listing until agreements are published in TIAS.
