John Jay Papers Added to Founders Online

The National Archives National Historical Publications and Records Commission and the University of Virginia completed a project to add select papers of John Jay to Founders Online. The John Jay papers in the collection are derived from the Jay Papers Project at Columbia University’s Rare Books & Manuscript Library.

Founders Online is a fully searchable database of correspondence and other writings from George Washington, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, John Adams and other members of his family, and now John Jay. Over 185,000 documents are included in the collection. Founders online began back in 2010. Only the works of Alexander Hamilton have been fully completed at this point. It is expected that when work is completed there will be about 200,000 documents freely available. Researchers can search by author, recipient, and even period.
