Walter Mondale Papers Project

Arrangement and description of the personal papers of Walter F. Mondale, along with selected digitization of photographs and the creation of a dedicated Web portal.

The Minnesota Historical Society seeks funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to complete the processing of the Walter Mondale papers and to create an online portal to information about Mondale and his political legacy. The Sociey is the primary repository for the personal papers of Walter Mondale. The collection encompasses Mondale's entire career, from his terms as Minnesota's attorney general through his senatorial career, his years as vice president, his 1984 presidential campaign, and subsequent public service. The MHS collection that documents his career so fully is an archival resource of national and international significance. Unfortunately, demand for access to the collection has so far outpaced the Society's ability to process and describe it. This project will allow MHS to complete the processing of the collection, to offer access to related Mondale materials at MHS, and to launch a federated search into Modale collections held elsewhere.
