"When this library is filled with documents, and scholars come here to probe into some of the facts of the past half century, I hope that they, as we today, are concerned primarily with the ideals, principles, and trends that provide guides to a free, rich, peaceful future in which all peoples can achieve ever-rising levels of human well-being."

President Dwight D. Eisenhower
Speech at the Ground Breaking Ceremonies for the Library, October 13, 1959
