The response from the Office of Presidential Libraries and the Office of Federal Register points to a variety of sources. The information may be in the Public Papers of the Presidents. Those that are online are available here: https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/browse/collection.action?collectionCode=PPP&browsePath=3&isCollapsed=false&leafLevelBrowse=false&ycord=0 For the administrations that are not available online, here's a link to the Federal Depository Library System: https://catalog.gpo.gov/fdlpdir/FDLPdir.jsp For Reagan forward, Appendix B of the Public Papers is a list of "Nominations Submitted to the Senate." For earlier nominations, a person might have to use the index in the Public Papers and look under Appointments and Nominations as a heading. Individual Presidential Libraries could probably also give information on their administrations. https://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/nominations/
