The Papers of Andrew Jackson

The completion of work on Volumes 8 and 9 and the beginning of work on Volume 10.

The Papers of Andrew Jackson is a scholarly editing project to collect and make available the extant literary record of the seventh president. The project has conducted an exhaustive worldwide search for documents and produced a comprehensive microfilm with accompanying hardbound guide. It is now publishing a 17-volume printed edition, the heart of which will be the eight annual presidential volumes. This grant will support completion of the second and third presidential volumes, Volumes 8 and 9, covering 1830 and 1831, and the start of work on Volume 10, covering 1832. Including many previously unpublished and even unknown documents, fully annotated and indexed, these volumes will provide an authoritative record of Jackson's presidency and advance scholarship on a broad range of related subjects. The Jackson project began collecting documents in 1971 and publishing volumes in 1980. It aims to produce a volume roughly every two and a half years.
