Major Grant Awarded to Polk Project

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the grant-making division of the National Archives and Records Administration, has awarded the James K. Polk Project a grant of $52,184 for 2016–17. The NHPRC has for decades generously contributed to the project. This grant will support work on Volume 14 of the Correspondence of James K. Polk, which will cover April 1848–June 1849, the final months of Polk’s presidency and of his life, and will complete the series.
