New Resources for Legal Historians

The library now has access to three new databases providing historical papers and biographical information of founding fathers.

While legal historians used to have to sift through papers to learn what John Marshall and John Jay had to say, they can now access this database and search for keywords, events, case namesĀ  and more.

Biographical information on over 25,000 people born between 1713 and 1815 is available in the People of the Founding Era database. You can find out information about every person George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, among others, corresponded with in the infancy of our nation.
