Regents of the University of California, Berkeley (Berkeley, CA 94704-5940)
Robert H. Hirst (Project Director: September 2002 to October 2007)
The Mark Twain Project

An electronic edition of Mark Twain's Complete Letters, 1853-1910 and Mark Twain's Complete Notebooks & Journals, 1855-1910. (36 months)

The Mark Twain Project of the University of California, Bancroft Library, seeks funding to complete the Electronic Edition of Mark Twain's Complete Letters, 1853-1910, and an Electronic Edition of Mark Twain's Complete Notebook & Journals, 1855-1910. These two publications will provide scholars and general readers alike with unprecedented access to Mark Twain's most personal documents: some 11,000 letters and 50 notebooks, which best preserve the details, in all their immediacy, of his intense and complex life as author, businessman, family man, public figure, and American. These digital projects are freestanding components of a proposed Electronic Edition of Mark Twain's Complete Works and Papers, an ambitious effort to provide online access via the World Wide Web to responsibly edited texts of Mark Twain's complete corpus.
