The Warren Christopher papers document the career of an American statesman who held government posts under three presidents,
most notably serving as secretary of state during the first term of Bill Clinton's administration. The largest part of the
collection relates to this period and mainly concerns the public side of Christopher's time as head of the State Department.
In particular, there are press releases, speeches, and photographs relating to official trips and meetings. There are also
materials in the papers pertaining to Christopher's other government posts, as well as to his long career as a lawyer with
a major firm in Los Angeles. The last part of the collection contains numerous video recordings of speeches by Christopher,
as well as of his appearances before committees of the U.S. Congress.
