Although [[George Wythe|Wythe's]] lecture notes from his teaching days at William & Mary are thought to have been extant as late as 1810, no collection of [[Wythe's Lost Papers|George Wythe's papers or correspondence]] has survived to the present day. Instead, the list below derives from Wythe's contemporaries. As a leader of the Revolution, Wythe exchanged correspondence with many of the notable men of his time and it is from their papers that we piece together the Chancellor's collection.

Letter from Wythe to Thomas Jefferson, dated January 1786. Image from the Library of Congress, The Thomas Jefferson Papers.


Although Wythe's lecture notes from his teaching days at William & Mary are thought to have been extant as late as 1810, no collection of George Wythe's papers or correspondence has survived to the present day. Instead, the list below derives from Wythe's contemporaries. As a leader of the Revolution, Wythe exchanged correspondence with many of the notable men of his time and it is from their papers that we piece together the Chancellor's collection.
