    I am looking for a biography of Thomas Jefferson to read. One of my goals in life is to either read the biographies or autobiographies of each US President. Any suggestions?

    The most notable scholar on Jefferson was Dumas Malone (1892 – 1986). He wrote "Jefferson and His Time, a six-volume biography of Jefferson. It went on to win a a Pulitzer Prize. The Thomas Jefferson Foundation published "Thomas Jefferson: A Brief Biography" in 1993, which was actually an essay written by Malone.
