Project Description

The Retirement Series is creating the definitive edition of Thomas Jefferson's letters and papers for the period from 1809 to 1826 in letterpress and digital forms. Jefferson's retirement is the least studied and one of the most fascinating periods of his life. During these years he founded the University of Virginia, and in selling his own unrivaled book collection, he turned the Library of Congress into a great cultural institution.
