The Papers of James Madison

Preparation for publication of volume 10 in the Secretary of State Series; volume 8 in the Presidential Series; and volumes 2 and 3 in the Retirement Series of the edition of the Papers of James Madison. (24 months)

The purpose of this project is to assemble and edit for publication the complete papers and recorded actions of James Madison. In order to achieve comparable advances in our understanding of the significance of Madison's still largely undocumented contribution to the development of the nation and its government in the early nineteenth century, it is therefore essential that the modern edition of Madison's papers, especially those that relate to his career as Thomas Jefferson's secretary of state, 1801-9, and to his own presidential administrations, 1809-17, be completed. An understanding of James Madison is also central to the work of a wide range of scholars, teachers, and public commentators who are concerned with the historical, legal, and philosophical issues that contributed to, or arose from, the founding of the American republic.
