About meRobert "Councillor" Carter III (February 1728 - 10 March 1804), Virginia planter and local official. In 1791 he began a manumission of his ~500 slaves, which became the largest known release of slaves prior to the Civil War.

About my libraryCarter's library is being cataloged from an inventory made of the collection by Philip Vickers Fithian in 1774-75, as well as from Carter's probate inventory.
