Funds for editing The Adams Papers were originally furnished by Time, Inc., on behalf of Life, to the Massachusetts Historical Society, under whose supervision the editorial work
is being done. Further funds have been provided by a grant from the Ford Foundation
to the National Archives Trust Fund Board in support of this and four other major
documentary publications. In common with these and many other enterprises like them,
The Adams Papers benefits from the continuing and indispensable cooperation and aid of the National
Historical Publications Commission, whose chairman is the Archivist of the United
Library of Congress Catalog Card Number 63–14964
