The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant

In 1964, after two years at Ohio State University, the Ulysses S. Grant Association moved to Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Led by its Executive Director and Managing Editor, John Y. Simon, who had just accepted a position in Southern Illinois University's Department of History, the Ulysses S. Grant Association began a forty-four year residency in the Morris Library on the Carbondale campus. Here John Y. Simon and a changing team of assistant editors researched and completed thirty-one volumes of The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant. With generous support from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Ulysses S. Grant Association, led by its long-time president, Chief Justice (Ret.) Frank J. Williams, Professor Simon produced this major work of documentary editing, while also regularly teaching courses in the Department of History. When he died in July 2008, he had completed all the chronological volumes, leaving for the new team of editors, led by John F. Marszalek, at the Mitchell Memorial Library, Mississippi State University, the completion of a supplementary volume and a scholarly edition of The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant.
