National Historic Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) awarded the George C. Marshall Foundation continuing support of $33,000 in the 2013-2014 year for editing and preparing for publication volume 7, the final volume of The Papers of George Catlett Marshall. Volume 7 is expected to be published in 2015. NHPRC has been a significant contributor to the project since 1977.
Editor of The Marshall Papers is Mark A. Stoler, Ph.D., a distinguished military and diplomatic historian who wrote the acclaimed biography of Marshall, George C. Marshall: Soldier-Statesman of the American Century. Managing editor is Daniel D. Holt, who recently retired as director of the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum and is an expert in the era to be covered in the remaining papers. Mame Warren, previously director for Hopkins History Enterprises at the Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University, is assistant editor
When completed, the Marshall Papers project will result in a seven-volume set of the edited papers of George C. Marshall. Volumes 1 through 6 have been published by the Johns Hopkins University Press. Copies are available at the Marshall Museum Shop and at major libraries. The online digital formats of volumes 1 through 5 are posted at www.marshallfoundation.org. Volume 6 will be posted online within the next year.
“Continuing financial commitment of the NHPRC to the Marshall Papers Project as well as recognition of the historic value of our signature project has been critical to the successful production of this long-term documentary edited series,” said Brian D. Shaw, president of the Marshall Foundation. Other continuing Federal support for the Papers Project has come from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The George C. Marshall Foundation, located in Lexington, Virginia, preserves, protects and promotes the example of George Marshall. The Marshall Foundation is the one place where the principles that motivated Marshall are kept alive through educational programs, online presence and facilities including a museum, research library, and archives.
