Preparation for digital publication of the papers of first lady Dolley Madison (1786-1849), including materials from 1846-1849. (36 months)

The Dolley Madison Digital Edition (DMDE) is an edited, documentary edition of the complete corpus of Dolley Payne Todd Madison (1768-1849). The mission of the DMDE is to locate, transcribe, annotate, and digitally publish Dolley's correspondence, as well as selected financial accounts and legal documents. In addition to annotations -- identifications of the people, places, and organizations mentioned in Dolley's letters -- editors research and publish editorial notes, which flesh out and contextualize this rich body of material. To date, the DMDE has published six volumes. The purpose of this proposal is to request funding to complete the DMDE by editing and publishing the final documents of Dolley Madison's life. During these last years, 1846 to 1849, Dolley reclaimed her position as a leader of Washington City's political society, a period that may be referred to as her third term as First Lady.
