American Founders: A - E

The resources on this page provide online access to the personal papers and/or publications of the major founders of the American Republic—that is, those men who served in roles of national political leadership between 1774 and 1815— whose surnames begin with the letters A through E; and to those of members of their immediate families.


The subscription resources marked with a padlock are available to researchers on-site at the Library of Congress. If you are unable to visit the Library, you may be able to access these resources through your local public or academic library.
