The Foundation’s focus is on the histories of the United States and the Holy Land, with emphasis on the 19th and 20th centuries. Its extensive holdings range from American presidents – especially Abraham Lincoln – to diverse figures such as Mark Twain; Albert Einstein; Theodor Herzl; and even to George Custer and the Little Big Horn.
