Robert Caro Archives

Early last year the New-York Historical Society arranged to acquire Robert Caro’s substantial archives. It includes the files for his Lyndon B. Johnson masterwork and for “The Power Broker.” “The Power Broker” illuminates the life and times of the Robert Moses. Moses used his political wiles to reshape the New York metropolitan region. Evidence can be seen all over New York City today!

Caro wants his archives to be available and used.  The unpublished materials extend well beyond Robert Moses and Lyndon Johnson. They encompass much of American life over the last century. From the streets of New York City to the rutted roads of the Texas Hill Country — to the marbled halls of the U.S. Senate.  It is all there for reading.
