Description:

Presents the official documentary historical record of major U.S. foreign policy decisions and significant diplomatic activity. The series, which is produced by the State Department's Office of the Historian, began in 1861 and now contains more than 350 individual volumes. The volumes published over the last two decades increasingly contain declassified records from all the foreign affairs agencies.

Foreign Relations volumes contain documents from Presidential libraries, Departments of State and Defense, National Security Council, Central Intelligence Agency, Agency for International Development, and other foreign affairs agencies as well as the private papers of individuals involved in formulating U.S. foreign policy....       -- Office of the Historian of the U.S. Department of State

The series is published in paper, but many of the volumes have been digitized either by the Department of State or the libraries at the University of Wisconsin at Madison or the University of Illinois at Chicago. The Department of State volumes begin with 1945/50, while those digitized by the University of Wisconsin and Illinois at Chicago cover the years 1861-1960. UK Libraries has these volumes in paper in the Government Publications section of Young Library (call number S1.1).

Description:

Provides access to documents collected by the Founders edition projects at an earlier stage in the documentary editing process. The six Founding Fathers projects are the Papers of Benjamin Franklin, published by Yale University Press; the Papers of George Washington, published by University of Virginia Press; the Adams Papers, published by Harvard University Press; the Papers of Thomas Jefferson, published by Princeton University Press; the Papers of James Madison, of which the early volumes were published by the University of Chicago Press, and later ones by the University of Virginia Press; and the Papers of Alexander Hamilton, published by Columbia University Press. The final volume of the Papers of Alexander Hamilton was published in 1987. The other projects will continue to publish volumes until the editions are complete. The staff of the various Founding Fathers’ projects have been collecting original documents for many years. These documents are copied, carefully transcribed and proofread by experts, edited and annotated before publication. The documents available in Early Access are scheduled to appear in the scholarly editions, both print and digital, but the majority of them have not yet entered the final stages of the process, professional scholarly editing and annotation. The level of accuracy of the documents in Early Access varies, but all have had at least one initial proofreading, while some have received the same editorial treatment as a published version. Rotunda and its partners are making these documents available as a service to the historical community to promote knowledge and learning, but please keep in mind as you use this information that many elements of these documents could change as they undergo scholarly review, including such things as author and recipient information, proper names, dates, and the transcription of individual words. Once an Early Access document has been published and made available in Rotunda, it will be removed from this database, to be replaced by the fully edited version in the appropriate digital edition in the RotundaAmerican Founding Era collection.

Unpublished documents are distinguished from published ones by the absence of editorial annotation, by the gray background, and by the footnote “This early release document should not be cited in formal research.”

Part of the University Virginia Press Rotunda Collections.
