September 17, 2010 — Holly C. Shulman, a research professor in history in the University of Virginia's College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and director of Documents Compass, has received a $67,000 grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission to support the Dolley Madison Digital Edition.

Shulman is the head editor of the first-ever complete collection of Dolley Madison's letters, with the digital edition being published by the University of Virginia Press imprint, Rotunda. The grant will help boost the collection's contents.
