The Art of Documentary Editing

The art of documentary editing can be described as the complicated process through which both popular and academic audiences come to know the primary sources for modern scholarship in history and literature. Herbert Bailey, Robert Hill, and Mary Jo Kline define and discuss the ground rules, goals, and limitations of documentary editing.

At the time of this discussion, Bailey was director of the Princeton University Press. Hill, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1983-84), was professor of history at the University of California, Los Angeles. Kline was assistant vice-president for printed and manuscript Americana at Sotheby’s.

This edition of  Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
