An American Scholar by Jeremy Rabkin

Jeremy Rabkin, Public Interest, Spring 1996.


Herbert Storing was probably the outstanding scholar of the American Founding of the past generation. Before he died in 1977—of a heart attack at the age of 49—he had completed most of the work on a fully annotated, seven-volume collection of Anti-Federalist writings. It will endure as a monument of scholarship when the scribblings of most of his contemporaries are long forgotten.
