RQ-266076-19

Trustees of Princeton University (Princeton, NJ 08540-5228)
James P. McClure (Project Director: December 2018 to present)
The Papers of U.S. President Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

Review and submission for publication of volume 45 and the preparation for publication of volumes 46 through 51 of the Papers of Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States. (36 months)

The Papers of Thomas Jefferson editorial project at Princeton University is preparing a comprehensive and authoritative scholarly edition of correspondence and other documents of Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826). The project, which includes papers that Jefferson received as well as those he wrote, has produced 44 substantial volumes since 1950, and the edition is now also accessible online. With a skilled team of seven editors, an editorial associate, and a part-time research associate in place, the Jefferson Papers is now moving into a final major phase, to complete the editing of documents from the period of Jefferson’s presidency of the United States. The goal is to complete preparation of the last volume (projected to be Volume 61) by 2033. We seek a continuation of Endowment support as we move this exemplar of historical scholarship into its final stage toward completion.

The Papers of Thomas Jefferson editorial project at Princeton University is preparing a comprehensive and authoritative scholarly edition of correspondence and other documents of Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826). The project, which includes papers that Jefferson received as well as those he wrote, has produced 43 substantial volumes since 1950, and the edition is now also accessible online.

The goal is to complete preparation of the last volume (projected to be Volume 61) by 2034. Having been the productive recipient of NEH grants from 1992 to 2010, and then voluntarily stepping aside from Endowment support, we now seek to renew our relationship with the NEH to move this exemplar of historical scholarship toward completion.

Barbara Bowen Oberg (Project Director: November 2006 to February 2011)
The Papers of Thomas Jefferson

Scholarly work on volumes 34-39 of the multi-volume edition of the Thomas Jefferson papers. (36 months)

This project at Princeton University is preparing the authoritative book edition as well as a digital edition of the already-published volumes of the papers of Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), scientist, primary author of the Declaration of Independence, advocate of religious freedom and freedom of the press, and the nation's third president. Less than 20 percent of his documentary legacy had been published previous to the inception of the Princeton edition. Thirty-eight volumes have appeared under the imprint of the Princeton University Press, thirty-three in the chronological series and five in the topical. During the proposed grant period, 2007-2010, we will work on six volumes of Jefferson's presidency, Volumes 34-39. We will submit three of these volumes to the Press. Together they cover 1 May 1801 through 30 April 1803, reaching the heart of the first term of Jefferson's presidency.

The Papers of Thomas Jefferson

To support the continuing preparation of an edition of the papers of Thomas Jefferson.

This project is preparing the authoritative book edition of the papers of Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826). No more than 20 percent of his documentary legacy had been published previous to the inception of the Princeton edition. Thirty-three volumes have appeared under the imprint of the Princeton University Press, 28 in the chronological series and 5 in the topical series. During the proposed grant period we will work on the four remaining pre-presidential volumes: final production work on Vol. 29 (1 March 1796-31 Dec. 1797); completion and submission of Vol. 30 (1 Jan. 1797-31 Jan 1799); completion and submission of Vol. 31 (1 Feb. 1799-31 May 1800); substantial editorial work on Vol. 32 (1 June 1800-3 March 1801); commencement of editing on Vol. 33 (the first presidential volume). The crucial groundwork for Jefferson's presidency will be laid during the proposed grant period.
