The library announced on Monday it had bought some 250 boxes, or nearly 300 linear feet in library parlance, from Schlesinger's estate for an undisclosed amount, safeguarding his journals and correspondence with world leaders for use by researchers and historians.
The price has been kept confidential, a library spokeswoman said.
The collection includes manuscripts, research files, phone logs, sound recordings, videos, date books and clippings from the mid-1930s to 1998, documenting monumental events from a man with a front-row seat to history.
