The Papers of Philander Chase

Goals and Methodologies

Goals of This Electronic Edition

1. To make the full texts of the papers of Philander Chase (both manuscript and printed) widely available and usable.  To this end, the complete body of papers are being published on this website (as they become available).  Users are able to browse by time period or document type.  Users are also able to search the complete texts as well as use an index to locate appearances of particular names, places, etc.

2. To make the electronic texts both portable and long-lasting.  Plain text (ASCII)  is used to make the texts viewable on any computer, and using any internet browser or word processing program, both now and in the future.

3. To render the texts as faithfully as possible.  Both printed and manuscript texts are reproduced as literally as possible within the constraints of the plain text format.
