Welcome to the main page of the Audio-visual Archives at the George Bush Presidential Library. Below, you will find a small sampling of photographs from the library's collection. Presently, the Bush Library houses more than 2,000,000 still photos, 10,000 video tapes, and 1,000 audio tapes that focus on George Bush's career as Vice President (1981-1989) and President (1989-1993). A limited number of photos documenting Mr. Bush's public service and family life prior to 1981 are also available. The Audio-visual Archives also contains photos of Barbara Bush during Mr. Bush's years as Vice President and President.
