The Complete Letters of Willa Cather

Work on the first stage of an online, open access edition of the complete correspondence of American novelist Willa Cather (1873-1947). (36 months)

We propose to edit Cather’s complete correspondence for digital publication on the completely free and open-access Willa Cather Archive ( We are asking for NEH support for the first stage of this edition: 1,500 letters, or half the complete currently-known corpus. This digital edition will feature texts transcribed and marked up in TEI P5 conformant XML, high-quality digital images of original documents, full multimedia annotations, and innovative search and browsing features including automatically-generated indices of names, titles, and geographic locations. The whole edition will be strengthened by its integration into the Willa Cather Archive, indisputably the central online resource for scholarly study of the author.
