Preservation of the George Washington and Robert Dinwiddie Papers

The Papers of Robert Dinwiddie, lieutenant-governor of colonial Virginia during the period of the French and Indian War and mentor to George Washington, include Washington letters and four letter books containing copies of letters sent by Dinwiddie in his official capacity, a large number of which were directed to Washington. The Society will conserve the collection by cleaning, mending, and re-housing it and also digitize items for online access as part of an educational feature on the Society's Web site.
