American Leadership Database

We are proud to offer to our readers—and to all who study U.S. political history—the American Leadership Database. This graphical and interactive information center will help anyone investigate generations of American political leaders.

At Saeculum Research, we are often asked about the political leadership exercised by each generation, both in our own lifetimes and going back in American history. Once readers become accustomed to thinking about generations born at a particular time with their own location in history, their own attitudes and beliefs, and their own sense of collective identity, they want to know more about the timing of each generation’s political ascendancy and decline. How are such peer groups concentrated by region? How do they lean by political party? When did they take over Congress? How early did they enter office and how long did they live? The American Leadership Database is designed to help users ask and answer just these kinds of questions.
