Archive Project - American Enterprise Institute (AEI)

AEI has a long and proud history. When the Institute announced that we would be moving to our new headquarters at 1789 Massachusetts Avenue, a team of volunteers began going through half a dozen dusty storage rooms in the basement of our old home. We unearthed some precious material, and we are now beginning to make it available to the wider public.

Recently, we started releasing occasional and online features called “From the Archives” that draw on Institute books and pamphlets. One “From the Archives” feature looked at AEI’s work on trade in the 1970s and 1980s and brought us up to date on AEI’s current work. Another called “The Other John Bolton” featured Amb. Bolton’s work at AEI on campaign finance when he was still a student at Yale Law School. Each topic covered explores a rich and vibrant history of scholarhip from AEI.

This project will tackle nearly eight decades of research on a vast array of topics. Stay tuned for some of the best of the American Enterprise Institute.
