Assistant Editor, Washington Papers
Adrina Garbooshian-Huggins received each her B.A. in French, her M.A. in French Studies and her Ph.D. in Modern Languages from Wayne State University. Though her degrees are in French, her doctoral dissertation focused on the French, American, and British Enlightenments.
From 2007 to 2011 Adrina was a post-doctoral associate and then Assistant Editor at the Papers of Benjamin Franklin.
Adrina joined the Papers of George Washington in 2013 and is currently an Assistant Editor. She has been working on the Financial Papers since the spring of 2016, and her duties on that project have included transcription checking, and the writing of annotations and identifications. As an editor on the Digital Edition, she helps to make changes to the digital edition and edits correspondence that has not appeared in the letterpress volumes. Prior to her current work, Adrina indexed volumes, worked on the digital edition cumulative index, and co-authored Revolutionary War volume 26 with Benjamin Huggins.
Adrina has always been interested in the American Enlightenment and eighteenth-century history. She is interested in the way in which Washington’s correspondence and financial papers offer clues about life at Mount Vernon.
