The Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies is partnering with these organizations in its work on the Correspondence of Zachary Taylor and Millard Fillmore. Their expertise in editing, history, and publication help to make the endeavor possible.


The University of Tennessee Press is a premiere publisher of documentary editions, including The Papers of Andrew Jackson, Correspondence of James K. Polk, and The Papers of Andrew Johnson. It will publish our three-volume print edition of Taylor’s and Fillmore’s letters.


Rotunda, the University of Virginia Press’s digital imprint, publishes a wide range of documentary editions in its acclaimed American History Collection. As a central partner in the digital publishing cooperative, the press will publish the digital version of our edition.


The University of Virginia Digital Publishing Cooperative, an initiative of UVA’s Center for Digital Editing and the University of Virginia Press, brings together experts in textual editing, history, and digital humanities from more than twenty academic institutions. Documentary editing projects, including ours, are building a common platform for the creation and publication of digital editions. By doing so, we will expand access, quality, and discoverability of these editions while improving efficiency and minimizing costs both to our individual projects and to users. This cooperative developed in response to a joint initiative between The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, and has been supported by a $1 million grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.


St. Olaf College is a premiere liberal arts college in Northfield, MN. We have partnered with its History Department to recruit St. Olaf students as interns on the Taylor-Fillmore project. They primarily have transcribed letters of the two presidents.


The Buffalo History Museum, then known as the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society, completed a microfilm edition of the Millard Fillmore Papers in 1975. For that effort, it partnered with the State University of New York, Oswego, and received support from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.


The University of Virginia’s Miller Center promotes research on the presidency, public policy, and political history. In partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services, it digitized the microfilm Millard Fillmore Papers.
