The Journal of Thomas Jefferson's Life and Times

The Journal is published twice annually. Spring issues are published in May. Fall issues are published in November.

Jefferson summarized the mission of The Journal in the letter he wrote he wrote du Pont de Nemours on 24 April 1816. Said Jefferson to the respected French economist:

“Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”

In keeping with Jefferson’s optimistic expectation, The Journal of Thomas Jefferson's Life and Times will “enlighten the people” with thoughtful, well-written, evidence-based commentaries on topics selected by its Board of Advisors.
