Politics

This undated painting made available by the Library of Congress shows John Jay (1745-1829). As more of his papers have become available in the early 21st century, Jay’s admirers, ranging from specialists to such popular historians as Joseph Ellis and Walter Isaacson, have been arguing that a founder they believe underrated deserves a closer look _ as one whose achievements extend to virtually every branch of government, on the state, federal and international level.
