RHETORICAL SOURCES

Archival Materials

The great bulk of Washington's surviving papers are in the Library of Congress, where they comprise 400 volumes of manuscripts. The standard published collection, Fitzpatrick Writings of Washington, includes all of Washington's major presidential addresses, although it omits most of the ceremonial speeches he delivered on such occasions as his regional tours. This shortcoming will eventually be remedied by The Papers of George Washington, a comprehensive new edition begun under the general editorship of William Abbot. A CD-ROM version is also in preparation.

George Washington: A Collection. (GWC). Edited by W. B. Allen. Indianapolis, IN: Liberty Classics, 1988.

The Papers of George Washington: Presidential Series. (PGW).. Edited by W. W. Abbot, et al. 4 Vols. to date. Charlottesville, VA: University Press of Virginia, 1987-.
