President George Whitefield Samson, ca. 1862. GW's 5th president, 1859-1871. RG0031, University Historical Material records.The Office of the President records (RG0002) is undergoing a re-organization beginning November 4 and continuing for 4-6 weeks. During this time it is completely closed to researchers. We look forward to providing you with improved access to this collection in December, 2016. Please contact the Special Collections Research Center with any questions. 

The Office of the President records, series 4, contains correspondence, reports, and other amazing documents. These materials range from GW’s 2nd president, Stephen Chapin (1828-1841), to GW’s 19th president, Stephen J. Trachtenberg (1988-2007), and all who served in between. The records reflect some of the most significant events in GW’s history, including the development of the University, the accreditation of various schools and programs, integration, prizes awarded, speeches and inaugural materials, and the minutes of different schools such as Columbian College,  the Law School and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
