Transforming access, knowledge and understanding

Other programme participants

In addition to funding provided by the primary partners, the Georgian Papers Programme also benefits from external funding from supporters in the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Library of Congress

The Library of Congress in October signed a memorandum of understanding with Royal Collection Trust and King’s College London, to share resources to aid in the digitization of the papers of George III. The Library will support a National Digital Stewardship Residency Program fellow who will analyze the existing and proposed metadata for historical materials from this era, including the Georgian papers at Windsor Castle.

Work to be done under the memorandum will also include making the materials available to scholars; holding a conference at the Library of Congress about using collections at various institutions in a synergistic manner; and laying the groundwork for an exhibition at the Library of Congress, currently planned for 2020/2021.

Fellowship schemes

The Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon fosters new scholarly research about George Washington and the Founding Era of the United States, while safeguarding original Washington books and manuscripts.

The Washington Library is extending its reach through an exciting new academic partnership with King’s College London to establish a scholarly exchange for a five-year period to support the Georgian Papers Programme.  Mount Vernon’s participation is funded through the generous support of the Amanda and Greg Gregory Family Fund. 

Each year, a Washington Library scholar will be named for a three-month fellowship (one month at Mount Vernon and two months in London/Windsor).  Reciprocally, a scholar from King’s College London will be chosen.  Each scholar will research areas of mutual interest in late-eighteenthth-century history and related subjects.

The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) is the largest male lineage organization in the USA. SAR is dedicated to assisting their members, schools, teachers and the general public in their efforts to sustain and preserve their history and constitutional principles.

One SAR Visiting Professorship will be awarded annually for each of the academic years 2016 through 2020.  SAR Visiting Professors will have direct access to the Royal Archives and individual workspace at King’s College London, where there will be opportunities to contribute to teaching.  Professors will be expected to make a significant contribution to increased public understanding and appreciation – both in the USA and UK – of the decades surrounding the American Revolution and in so doing contribute to academic discourse.
