The Trial Pamphlets Collection is an exciting digitization project undertaken by the law library with funding of $155,700 from the Save America’s Treasures Grant Program. The digitized collection, drawn from our Special Collections, consists of pamphlets capturing a formative period in American history ranging in date from the late 1600s to the late 1800s. The pamphlets contained contemporary accounts of trials that involved prominent citizens or that dealt with especially controversial or lurid topics. We are indebted to Law Library Associate Director for Special Collections and Administrative Services Thomas Mills and the entire project staff for their remarkable contributions in making this project a reality. Additional content will be added in the upcoming months.
