|Portrait of Queen Caroline, from Lord Brougham|
Considered as a Lawyer (Boston, 1868).
Some quick highlights: letters and photos from our outstanding Clarence Darrow Archive, the London Times obituary of Winston Churchill from January 25, 1965 (thanks to Professor David Weissbrodt for this item!), and images from our extensive trial collection (including the trial of Charles I, Major John Andre, spy and accomplice of Benedict Arnold, and the successful insanity defense of Jonathan Martin). Others range from a fascinating example of an extra-illustrated biography of Henry Brougham, a copy of one of our Magna Carta exhibit items with an interesting 19th-c. newspaper clipping, a New York State Constitution showing William Seward's seat in the NY Senate, and neat items related to suffrage.
