The most significant published collection of Hoover papers is the official Public Papers published by the National Archives. The National Archives edition is limited to Hoover's years in the White House and includes only official public messages (e.g. speeches, press conferences, public statements). Supplementing the Public Papers, the National Archives published a two volume collection of Proclamations and Executive Orders. In addition to these National Archive publications, there exist single volume publications focusing on press conferences and campaign speeches.
