American Council of Learned Societies Devoted to Humanistic Studies (New York, NY 10017-6706)
James A. Secord (Project Director: November 2008 to April 2016)
The Correspondence of Charles Darwin

Preparation for the print publication of Volumes 18-20 of the British naturalist Charles Darwin's correspondence, covering the years 1870-72. (36 months)

This proposal seeks funding from the NEH for the period of August 1, 2009 through July 30, 2012, to support the scholarly edition The Correspondence of Charles Darwin. The Darwin Correspondence Project is an independent, binational scholarly undertaking, jointly managed by the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) and Cambridge University, with the object of providing the definitive edition of letters to and from Charles Darwin (1809-1882), the most celebrated naturalist of the nineteenth century. The Project's output is in the form of both a comprehensive print edition, The Correspondence of Charles Darwin (F. Burkhardt et al. eds), and a fully searchable Online Database (; letter texts and explanatory notes are incorporated into the Online Database four years after print publication. When complete, the print edition will comprise thirty volumes, two of which will be two-part volumes.
