St. George Tucker Law Papers

Final preparation for publication of an edition of the law papers of the early American judge and legal scholar St. George Tucker. (12 months)

This is a two-volume edition of the law papers of St. George Tucker (1752-1827), an influential figure in American law best known for his edition of Blackstone's Commentaries. The edition consists principally of Tucker's reports of cases in the courts of Virginia, 1786-1811, a period in which he served as judge of the General Court and of the Court of Appeals. It will also include Tucker's reports of cases in the U.S. District Court and U.S. Circuit Court, 1813-1822, when he was a judge of those courts, and selected loose papers. Tucker's law papers are preserved in the Tucker-Coleman Collection at William and Mary. They have never been published. The goal of the grant period is to bring the project to completion and publication.
