The Jesse Helms Center Archives is dedicated to providing researchers with access to our collection in a variety of formats. Utilizing technology is essential for us to fulfill our mission. Digitization provides online access to researchers interested in our textual and non-textual records. This is an ongoing project and we will continually add to our online collections.
In office from Watergate to the 9/11 attacks and serving with seven Presidents, Senator Helms rose to chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee and placed North Carolina on the 20th Century political landscape. Therefore, we believe our records offer a wealth of information essential to understanding modern United States and North Carolina history.
