Presidential Speeches

The text to most of the public messages and statements of the President of the United States that were released by the White House during the Eisenhower Administration, January 20, 1953 through January 20, 1961, may be found in the eight volumes, Public Papers of the Presidents: Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1953 - 1961. The items in these volumes are presented in chronological order, rather than being grouped in classes. Most needs for a classified arrangement are met by the subject index volume, The Cumulated Indexes to the Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States: Eisenhower.

"The Public Papers of the Presidents: The American Presidency Project" is an online resource that has consolidated, coded, and organized into a single searchable database the messages and papers of the Presidents Washington - Obama.

You may conduct text searches of the Eisenhower speeches in the Presidential Papers of the Presidents online at The American Presidency Project.
