Farewell to the Dengrove Courtroom Sketches

A sketch depicting a scene from the Son of Sam trial

Son of Sam Trial

Students returning to campus this fall may wonder what happened to the intriguing courtroom sketches that were on display in the Georgetown Law Library. Their creator, Ida Libby Dengrove, drew some of the most memorable trials of the late twentieth century.

The Dengrove exhibit was provided on loan from the University of Virginia Law Library, and its time with us has come to an end. However, you can still view the collection on the UVA Law Library website and learn more about the events the sketches depict.

Now on display in the the Williams third floor atrium are landscape photos taken by library staff. We hope you enjoy them, and please let us know if you have any feedback of suggestions for future exhibits.
