The preparation for publication of volumes 17, 21, and 22 of the papers of George Washington (1732-1799), Revolutionary War general and first president of the United States, and begin work on a digital edition of Washington's financial papers. (12 months)

The Papers of George Washington is a historical documentary editing project that is engaged in publishing a modern comprehensive edition of George Washington's public and private papers. The project has, to date, published sixty-four of a projected eighty-seven volumes and issues two new volumes, on average, each year. The project also has a Digital Edition, and has begun work on a digital-only Financial Papers project. The project's scholarly value and sustained productivity won it the National Humanities Medal in 2005. This request is for a supplement grant for one year with expansion of scope, covering our production of three new letterpress volumes and development of the Financial Papers project to the point of completion of the content management database; entry of Washington's three main ledger books; and production of a basic prototype web interface.
