In 1987, Americans will celebrate the bicentennial of their nation’s Constitution. Already, the American Historical Association and the American Political Science Association have launched Project '87, a joint scholarly effort to re-examine the work of the Founding Fathers and to encourage "public understanding and appraisal of this unique document." In the spirit of this enterprise, A. E. Dick Howard discusses the life and thought of one of the Constitution's leading architects.
