Herbert J. Storing (1928-1977) was a noted professor of Constitutional History and Law, the Federalist Papers, and, most notably, the Anti-Federalists, in which he was considered the foremost authority. Prior to his death at the age of 49 he had completed most of his annotated seven volume collection of Anti-Federalist writings, The Complete Anti-Federalist, which will remain as a classic work of scholarship. In comprehensiveness and scholarly thoroughness his works are highly unlikely ever to be superseded.
Some of Dr. Storing's other scholarly achievements include Toward a More Perfect Union, a collection of most of his shorter works that documents the broad range of his scholarly interests.
At the time of his death, Professor Storing was the Robert K. Gooch Professor of Government, and the director of the Program on the Presidency and White Burkett Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia.
