University of Maryland: Fundraising Begins For White House Correspondents’ Association Pool Reports Collection. “The University of Maryland, the White House Correspondents’ Association and the Freedom Forum Institute celebrated the start of a partnership Tuesday that will bring a permanent digital archive of White House correspondents’ pool reports to the university. The White House Correspondents’ Association Pool Reports Collection — a unique record of the United States presidency — will be available online. It will consist of the reports written every day by members of the White House press corps on the activities of the president.” I mentioned this in April but we’re at the fundraising point now.
University of Maryland: UMD, White House Correspondents’ Association, and Newseum Partner to Create Archive of Presidential Pool Reports. “The White House Correspondents’ Association and the University of Maryland today announced the creation of a unique new window into the world of the president and the press — a permanent and ongoing digital, searchable archive of presidential pool reports produced by White House correspondents.” The archive is expected to take a couple of years to put together.
