The Diaries of Gouverneur Morris Digital Edition

  • Melanie Randolph Miller, Editor
  • Hendrina Krol, Associate Editor

Gouverneur Morris played an important role in the American Revolution, made profound contributions to the Constitution (including writing its Preamble), and was the American minister to France during the height of the French Revolution. He began keeping a diary after arriving in France in 1789 and continued until his death in 1816. This Rotunda version of his diaries includes both the new UVA Press edition of his European diaries covering 1794–98, and a corrected version of the two-volume 1939 edition of his Paris diaries from 1789–1793. A final volume with the 1799–1816 diaries will be added in the future.
