Gallagher (John Jay Papers), and the individual papers are "Kings College and the Foundations of John Jay’s Diplomacy" (Benjamin C. Lyons, Columbia University); "John Jay’s 1788 'Address to the People of the State of New York' and the Dynamics of the Ratification Debate: A New Look" (Todd Estes, Oakland University); and "Two Treaties, Two Diplomats, and Two Scholarly Editions: John Jay, Thomas Pinckney, and the Art and Practice of Scholarly Editorial Collaboration" (Constance B.
