Selected Images From the Collections of the Library of Congress

Prints and Photographs Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., 20540-4730

These images were selected to meet requests regularly received by the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. The images are presented for educational and research purposes. The Library of Congress is unaware of any restrictions on the use of the images. However, patrons who plan to publish or otherwise distribute any of the images should be aware that determination regarding the appropriate use of an image ultimately rests with the patron. The Library generally does not own rights to material in its collections. Therefore, it does not charge permission fees for use of such material and cannot give or deny permission for use of the images. For further information, see "Copyright and Other Restrictions ... Sources for Information."

Three methods are available for accessing the images:

  1. Images in alphabetical order:
  2. List of names in alphabetical order, with links to images
  3. List of names in chronological order by presidential term, with links to images

(Note: This selection of images is also presented in the American Memory offering, By Popular Demand: Portraits of the Presidents and First Ladies.)

Photographic copies of the images may be ordered through the Library of Congress Photoduplication Service.

References to additional images on this subject can be found by searching the Prints and Photographs Online Catalog by the names of presidents. (The Prints and Photographs Division does not have photographs of George W. Bush; they must be requested from the George W. Bush Presidential Library.)
