Preparation of a 3-volume print edition, a selected reader, and an open-access digital edition of the works of John Dickinson. (36 months)

This Project will be the first complete, scholarly edition of the writings of Founding Father John Dickinson (1732-1808). Known today as the "Penman of the Revolution," Dickinson was one of the most influential of the Founders, producing more writings from the beginning of the conflict with Britain and into the early Republic than any other figure. His most famous work, Farmer's Letters (1767-68), was one of around 150 published and unpublished writings. As a member of every congress and convention, he authored many speeches and most of the seminal state papers before independence, including the Resolutions of the Stamp Act Congress, the Declaration for Taking Up Arms, and the Articles of Confederation. But he also wrote many documents directly to the people in the form of newspaper articles, pamphlets, broadsides, odes, and songs. The Project will collect all extant published and manuscript documents and publish them in critical scholarly edition in both print and digital versions.
