Ronald Reagan
The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation is the nonprofit organization created by President Reagan himself and specifically charged by him with continuing his legacy and sharing his principles - individual liberty, economic opportunity, global democracy and national pride. The Foundation is a non-partisan organization which sustains the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, the Reagan Center for Public Affairs, the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Presidential Learning Center and its internationally recognized, award-winning Discovery Center, and the Air Force One Pavilion.
The White House Diary
During his eight years as President, Ronald Reagan recorded his innermost thoughts and observations in his personal diary. These handwritten diaries have been coupled with his White House Diary - a daily schedule of meetings and events the President attended - to provide insights into the historic, the extraordinary, and the routine day-to-day events of his Presidency.

Read the Diaries
The Presidency
President Reagan promoted leadership, advanced communication and advocated freedom.
Life & Times
Ronald Reagan dreamt of a nation focused on freedom and achieving its "destiny to be as a shining city on a hill for all mankind to see."
The Great Communicator

"And, I won a nickname, "The Great Communicator." But I never thought it was my style or the words I used that made a difference: it was the content. I wasn't a great communicator, but I communicated great things [that] came from the heart of a great nation."

Nancy Reagan

"You can't be pessimistic about anything. You always have to be optimistic that you can solve something, anything, in life."

- Nancy Reagan
