The Papers of Thomas Jefferson

Preparation for publication of volumes 45 through 50 of the multi-volume edition of the Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) presidential papers. (12 months)

The Papers of Thomas Jefferson editorial project at Princeton University is preparing a comprehensive and authoritative scholarly edition of correspondence and other documents of Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826). The project, which includes papers that Jefferson received as well as those he wrote, has produced 43 substantial volumes since 1950, and the edition is now also accessible online. With a skilled team of seven editors, an editorial associate, and a part-time research associate in place, the Jefferson Papers is now moving into a final major phase, to complete the editing of documents from the period of Jefferson’s presidency of the United States. The goal is to complete preparation of the last volume (projected to be Volume 61) by 2034. Having been the productive recipient of NEH grants from 1992 to 2010, and then voluntarily stepping aside from Endowment support, we now seek to renew our relationship with the NEH to move this exemplar of historical scholarship toward completion.
