RQ-50849-14

Yale University (New Haven, CT 06510-1703)
Ellen R. Cohn (Project Director: January 2014 to present)
The Papers of Benjamin Franklin for Volumes 42-46

Preparation for publication of volumes 42-46 of the papers of Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), American statesman, businessman, and inventor. (36 months)

The Papers of Benjamin Franklin is a long-term collaborative project to produce a comprehensive, annotated edition of the papers and writings of one of the nation's most illustrious writers, printers, scientists, statesmen, and founders. Since 1959 it has published 40 volumes, and Volume 41 is in press. Based on an archive of 30,000 photocopies of manuscripts gathered from around the world and housed at Yale University, the edition presents Franklin's thought and activities in the context of the 18th century American and European Enlightenment. The volumes currently being edited document the period immediately following the signing of the 1783 Treaty of Paris granting American independence. They document, for the first time, the negotiations for America's first commercial treaties, Franklin's multi-faceted campaign to publicize American democratic ideals, and his theories on various scientific questions. This proposal requests support for editorial work on volumes 42 through 46.
