The Dolley Madison Digital Edition

  • Holly C. Shulman, editor

Containing over 2,400 letters, with another thousand letters to follow in periodic updates, this XML-based archive allows users to perform simple or advanced searches by period, correspondent, or topic. The letters may also be accessed directly through a sortable list or read in chronological order. Proper names link to a glossary that identifies over 2,500 people and places, providing a unique biographical view on the elites of the early Republic.

Excellent scholarship....The online glossary is a goldmine....Highly recommended for all public, academic, and special libraries serving researchers in history, gender stduies, or political science....[The Dolley Madison Digital Edition] bodes well both for the future of online scholarship and Rotunda.

Cheryl LaGuardia, Library Journal

The digital edition of the Papers of Dolley Madison is one of the most useful, best organized scholarly tools around. It’s easy to search, easy to browse, and the notes do a terrific job of putting documents in context. Holly Shulman has made an enormously important contribution to scholarship with this effort.
