Acquired in 2008, the Claude Paillat papers in the Hoover Institution Archives represent a substantial documentary resource
on modern French history. At present, they are the single largest collection relating to France in the holdings of the archives.

during the period between the end of World War I and the aftermath of World War II. There are additional materials relating
to the wars in Indochina and Algeria; to the local and regional history of 20th century France; to the presidencies of Charles
de Gaulle, Georges Pompidou, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, and François Mitterrand; and to French economic history.
