Herbert J. Storing (1928-1977) was a professor of Constitutional History and Law, the The Federalist Papers, and, most notably, the Anti-Federalists. 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 was later completed by his former student Murray Dry.

Another of Dr. Storing's scholarly works is Toward a More Perfect Union, a collection of most of his shorter works.

A student of Leo Strauss, he spent most of his professional life at the University of Chicago. He also had been a visiting professor at Northern Illinois University.

In 1977, shortly before his untimely death, Storing became the Robert K. Gooch Professor of Government and director of presidential studies at the Miller Center at the University of Virginia.[1]
