The White House Communications Agency audiotape collection contains more than 1,800 tapes of President Gerald R. Ford's speeches, news conferences, and other public statements, 1974-77 (see full list). The staff has digitized a select group of recordings covering such events as President Ford's swearing-in ceremony, his appearance before the committee investigating the Nixon pardon, State of the Union addresses, press conferences, and television interviews.

List of digitized recordings

Please note that:

  • The recordings are available as both WAV and MP3 files.
  • They are in the public domain so they have no copyright restrictions.
  • These are large files and may take some time to download
  • Recordings have not been edited, so they sometimes commence with extraneous content.
  • Transcripts of public statements by President Ford are available on the American Presidency web site
