Adams Papers Editorial Project

Preparation for publication of volumes 20, 21, and 22 of the papers of John Adams (1735-1826) and volumes 15, 16, and 17 of the Adams Family's correspondence. (24 months)

The Adams Papers Editorial Project at the Massachusetts Historical Society (MHS) is the authoritative scholarly edition of the diaries, letters, official records, public writings, and literary miscellanies written by three generations of the Adams family of Massachusetts, including Abigail Adams, John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Charles Francis Adams, and their families. Based on the Adams Family Papers collection at the MHS and supplemented by Adams manuscripts in other archives, this family record charts the changes that transformed American life between the American Revolution and the Civil War. Since 1956, the project has published 55 volumes, with 47 freely available online. Editors are focused on the founding generation’s efforts to establish the American union, a complex saga that will unfold in 20 more volumes by 2040. The Adams Papers has received the aid of the NEH continuously since 2003, and we seek further support to make this unparalleled resource accessible to all.
