Gregg L. Lint is Series Editor for the Papers of John Adams of the Adams Papers at the Massachusetts Historical Society.
Women's rights and the birth of a nation are just two subjects in the enormous scope of the Adams Papers, a 250,000-page collection of letters, diaries, and public papers of President John Adams, Abigail Adams, their son, John Quincy Adams, who became the country's sixth president, and other members of the Adams clan... Together, the writings not only chronicle much of the nation's early history, but they provide one of the longest and most complete views of the life of an American family-albeit an extraordinary one-during the 18th and 19th centuries. -- Alvin Powell * Harvard Gazette *
