RQ-266076-19

Trustees of Princeton University (Princeton, NJ 08540-5228)
James P. McClure (Project Director: December 2018 to present)
The Papers of U.S. President Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

Review and submission for publication of volume 45 and the preparation for publication of volumes 46 through 51 of the Papers of Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States. (36 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 44 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 2033. We seek a continuation of Endowment support as we move this exemplar of historical scholarship into its final stage toward completion.
