Papers of Gouverneur Morris: Diaries Project

Work to prepare two volumes of the diary of Gouverneur Morris. (36 months)

This project is the first step in an undertaking to publish the papers of Gouverneur Morris (1752-1816), a Founding Father, major contributor to the Constitution, minister to France during the French Revolution, and U.S. Senator. There is no modern or complete publication of his papers. This project will make available valuable documentary material concerning the Revolutionary and early national periods. This part concerns Morris's diaries from 1794-98, which contain much material on American domestic and foreign policy and European affairs. Morris was a friend of Washington and Hamilton and his diaries reflect his correspondence with them. The project will result in an annotated letterpress edition and an online edition.
