Adams Papers Awarded Fellowship from NHPRC
The National Historical Publications and Records Commission has awarded the Adams Papers a $59,500 Historical Documentary Editing Fellowship to begin in the summer of 2010. The one-year fellowship not only offers an excellent opportunity to a post-graduate historian to train in all aspects of documentary editing through the correspondence and writings of one of America’s first families; it also provides the Adams Papers editorial project with another editor to contribute to the rigorous publication schedule of one scholarly volume per year. With a stipend of $45,000 plus benefits, the editorial fellow will work on three series—Adams Family Correspondence, Papers of John Adams, and the Diary and Autobiography of Louisa Catherine Adams—as well as the ongoing digitization of the edition. The Adams Papers has received this grant several times since the project’s founding, most recently in 2007, and has greatly benefited from working with and training new historians in the field of documentary editing. The full job description will be posted at the MHS website. Interested applicants are invited to check back during the month of February.
