|The tour will be led by Joann Maguire-Chavez, Special Collections and Records and Briefs Librarian. With a Masters in Library Science from the University of Maryland, she has been at the Supreme Court since 1999 in various roles and has been working with the rare books since 2004.
After the tour, we will adjourn to the Supreme Court cafeteria for a Dutch-treat lunch to continue the conversation. Directions to the cafeteria will be given after the tour.
The current exhibit includes Elbridge Gerry’s 16 scrapbooks from the Mutual Life investigation, a landmark Supreme Court case that created one of the most important rules of evidence: an exception to the hearsay rule for statements regarding the intentions of the declarant. Gerry was a member of the Board of Mutual Life until he resigned in March of 1906.
This tour is limited to 20 attendees. To reserve a spot, please e-mail William E. Baxter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you there! We are excited about the upcoming year of events.
William E. Baxter,
President, Washington Rare Book Group
