American Voices is a collection of late 19th and 20th century recordings, images and text that span the vista of American politics and culture. This archive features vast and valuable resources, including recordings by Neil Armstrong, Muhammad Ali, Spiro Agnew, and Dorothy Day— among many, many others. In addition to being searchable by person and/or topic, the American Voices archive allows visitors to build their own galleries of materials based on selection criteria. The site then responds dynamically to create a display of resources that address the criteria chosen.
