'The Sage of Monticello' brilliantly recounts the accomplishments, friendships, and family difficulties of Jefferson's last seventeen years--including his retirement from Washington and the presidency, his correspondence with John Adams and James Madison, his mounting personal tribulations, and his role in the founding of the Library of Congress and the University of Virginia, where he proved himself to be an extraordinary educator and architect as well as a statesman. This is a fitting final chapter in the life of one of America's greatest men.

About the Author

Dumas Malone, 1892–1986, spent thirty-eight years researching and writing Jefferson and His Time. In 1975 he received the Pulitzer Prize in history for the first five volumes. From 1923 to 1929 he taught at the University of Virginia; he left there to join the Dictionary of American Biography, bringing that work to completion as editor-in-chief. Subsequently, he served for seven years as director of the Harvard University Press. After serving on the faculties of Yale and Columbia, Malone retired to the University of Virginia in 1959 as the Jefferson Foundation Professor of History, a position he held until his retirement in 1962. He remained at the university as biographer-in-residence and finished his Jefferson biography at the University of Virginia, where it was begun.
