The Papers of James Monroe

Preparation for publication of volumes 8 and 9 of the papers of James Monroe (1758-1831), fifth President of the United States. (24 months)

The Papers of James Monroe is a longstanding initiative to collect, transcribe, annotate, and publish ten letterpress volumes of selected correspondence and other public and private papers of the fifth president of the United States. The project is sponsored by the University of Mary Washington and funded primarily by the National Endowment for the Humanities. A Comprehensive Catalogue of the Correspondence and Papers of James Monroe was released in two volumes in 2000. The first volume of The Papers of James Monroe appeared in 2003. Subsequent volumes have followed at regular three-year intervals. The most recent, volume seven, will be out in early 2020. The proposed grant will be applied to the preparation of volumes eight and nine.
