New Federal 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 $18,065 for 2017–18. The NHPRC has generously supported the project for decades. This grant will support work on the fourteenth and final volume of the Correspondence of James K. Polk, which will cover April 1848–June 1849. In these months Polk concluded his presidency and suffered the illness that ended his life.
