St. George Tucker Law Papers

Work on a two-volume edition of the law reports and papers of St. George Tucker. (24 months)

This is a two-volume edition of the law papers of St. George Tucker (1752-1827), an influential figure in American law known for his edition of Blackstone's Commentaries. The edition consists principally of Tucker's reports of cases in the courts of Virginia, 1786-1811, a period in which he served as judge of the General Court and of the Court of Appeals. It will also include Tucker's reports of cases in the U.S. District Court and U.S. Circuit Court, 1813-1824, when he was a judge of those courts. Tucker's reports, along with an extensive collection of loose papers, are preserved in the Tucker-Coleman Collection at William and Mary. They have never been published. The goal of the grant period is to annotate the cases through the year 1807.
