Carl Briggs – ‘My colleagues and I are Project Scholars who help people learn the “inside” stories of Thomas Jefferson, the other early presidents, and the officials who worked with them to establish the new government. We proofread thousands of transcriptions of presidential letters, general correspondence, war reports, and other documents to ensure their accuracy for a new website of the National Archives, Founders Online. It’s rewarding to make the powerful, personal words of these early Americans and the letters of those from other countries available to a worldwide audience. We’re UVa employees with Documents Compass of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities.’ Project Scholar, Virginia Foundation for the Humanities
