The Eleanor Roosevelt Papers

Preparation of volumes 2 and 3; editorial work on volume 4 and the accompanying web-based educational materials and mini-editions. (36 months)

The Eleanor Roosevelt Papers, a documentary edition of Eleanor Roosevelt's post-White House writings and public appearances on politics, policy, democracy, and human rights sponsored by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the George Washington University, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and other private donors, seeks a three-year grant from the Scholarly Editions Division to support the publications of its second, third, and fourth volumes (of a five-volume series) in letterpress and electronic format. These funds will allow the Papers to retain the staff necessary to fulfill its commitment to the NEH, its We the People initiative, and other funders to produce quality editions, accessible to a wide audience, in both new and traditional media, in a timely efficient manner. The documents included in these volumes come from 823 collections in 263 archives in nine nations and include audio, video, graphic material and written text.
