    Papers of federal district and appellate judges

    LOC Manuscript Division Tracker

      The Manuscript Division is also excited to share the publication of a new guide "The Federal Paper Chase: Judges' Papers in the Manuscript Division". This guide provides assistance in using the personal papers of federal district and appellate judges found in manuscript collections of the Library of Congress documenting legal, urban, carceral, and cultural history. It also highlights the Manuscript Division's collections of federal lower court judges of the United States circuit courts of appeal and federal district courts (non-Supreme Court collections, e.g. non-SCOTUS). The guide is arranged by type of court and therein alphabetically by the name of judge. Each entry contains an overview of a collection and highlights its strengths and unique features. Each entry includes links to catalog records for an individual collection. On each catalog record, find more information about the collection.
