Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation (Springfield, IL 62701-1011)
Daniel Worthington (Project Director: December 2018 to present)
The Papers of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

Preparation for online publication of materials from the congressional service and political campaigns of Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), 16th president of the United States. (36 months)

The Papers of Abraham Lincoln is a documentary editing project dedicated to identifying, imaging, transcribing, annotating, and publishing digitally all documents written by or to Abraham Lincoln during his lifetime (1809-1865). The project aspires to foster new and innovative scholarship on Abraham Lincoln, antebellum America, and the Civil War by replacing Roy P. Basler et al., eds., The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, which encompassed 6,769 documents. The Papers of Abraham Lincoln will add an additional 99,566 documents to the Lincoln corpus. Richer, fully-cited annotations and the power of digital technology will offer scholars, students, and enthusiasts a fresh, new look at the words and works of one of America’s most admired public figures. The Papers of Abraham Lincoln Digital Library, the project’s digital product published in 2018, includes 5,203 documents from Lincoln’s early life to 1841.
