In 1971, Albert T. Klyberg, then and now the director of the Rhode Island Historical Society, proposed the publication of a letterpress edition of Greene's papers, the "bound books" of correspondence whose creation Nathanael Greene had desired and Congress had endorsed. The William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan, holder of the largest collection of the papers, co-sponsored the proposed project. In March 1972, Richard K. Showman, who had been the assistant editor of the revised edition of the Harvard Guide to American History, was chosen as editor. Editorial offices were established at the headquarters of the Rhode Island Historical Society. Showman headed the project until his retirement in 1993, when he was succeeded as editor by Dr. Dennis Conrad, a specialist in Greene's Southern campaigns, who had been with the project since 1983.
