The Papers of Daniel Webster: Correspondence, Volume 1, 1798-1824

Overview

Overview

The original impetus for this project may be traced to a 1954 report to the President of the United States by the National Historical Publications Commission, in which was proposed a program to publish "the writings of men whose contributions to our history are now inadequately represented by published works." High on the list of those persons to be studied and published was Daniel Webster. It was appropriate that Dartmouth College should undertake publication of the papers of its most illustrious graduate.

The Webster Papers project has always been conceived as a combined microfilm-letterpress enterprise. Funds to issue the complete papers on microfilm were provided by the National Historical Publications, and they are now available on forty-one reels including approximately 16,000 items of correspondence. These supplement some 400 reels of official papers available through the National Archives and Record Service. The best guide to the voluminous microfilm edition is the selective, annotated letterpress editon now being inaugurated. In this edition documents have been chosen for their historical significance, they have been transcribed, and persons and events have been identified and placed in context by the editors. These selected documents, even though they comprise no more than one in ten--or for official papers on in fifty--cannot fail to be of immense assistance to the user of the far more extensive micro film edition. The letterpress edition will also provide the less dedicated scholar, the student of the period, and the general reader with the essential Webster in convenient annotated form, and will be valuable edition for all libraries maintaining a collection in American history.
