Executive Orders (Beginning with J.Q. Adams )

Special note: On our summary page, we explain that our collection of executive order texts is complete beginning with the administration of Harry S. Truman through the present. For the period of time prior to 1945, the APP collection is not complete--although it includes all documents published in official presidential compilations. The archives of the American Presidency Project continues to grow as we obtain and digitize original texts. See Executive Order counts per term.
