The John Howard Prime Ministerial Library houses personal papers, amassed, and kept by John Howard. Although the papers are predominantly Howard's personal collection, the archive also includes some residual original and copied official records.
This collection contains personal notes and papers, correspondence, early Commonwealth records, press clippings, transcripts of speeches, election pamphlets and other items covering the period from 1974-2007.
UNSW Canberra houses a separate archive, complementing the personal papers, of John Howard's official government records, amassed by John Howard and staff as parliamentarian. These were transferred to the National Archives of Australia and housed by special arrangement at UNSW Canberra as the 'John Howard Collection' (under Section 64 of the Archives Act 1983).
