Not always a speech

For more than a century the State of the Union was not delivered as a speech. According to David Mayer, Thomas Jefferson started a long-standing tradition of sending the State of the Union as a written message to Congress to reinforce the constitutional separation of powers. [1] The practice of delivering an annual public address was revived in 1913 under Woodrow Wilson's administration and quickly stuck.
