Completion of editorial work on electronic and print publications of Volume 2 and beginning work on Volume 3 of Mark Twain's Autobiography; continued adding of Twain's major works and letters to the Mark Twain Project Online (MTPO); updating online platform to current standards. (24 months)

The Mark Twain Project proposes to complete Volume 2 of the Autobiography of Mark Twain, by far the largest and arguably the most important of the works that Mark Twain left deliberately unpublished at his death in 1910. Volume 2 will, like Volume 1 before it, be published both in print and on the Project's website, MTPO. (Volume 1 is now at the press and due out in August 2010.) One more volume will complete this, the first comprehensive edition of Mark Twain's last, major literary work. The Project also proposes to add the complete text of its print editions of Tom Sawyer and Connecticut Yankee to MTPO, along with another ten years of letters (through 1895). And it intends to make various necessary but challenging improvements and upgrades to the infrastructure of MTPO, which has recently been approved by the Committee on Scholarly Editions of the MLA.
