The project, under the editorial direction of Gary E. Moulton (left), Thomas C. Sorensen Emeritus Professor of American History and former Associate Director of the Center for Great Plains Studies at UNL, was sponsored by the Center from its inception in 1979 until its completion in 2001.
The thirteen-volume edition of the journals consists of an atlas of maps, a book of botanical specimens, and the diaries of Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, and four enlisted men; the volumes are published by the University of Nebraska Press. During the life of the project, the Center cooperated with the American Philosophical Society which holds most of the expedition journals and received financial support from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the new edition.
