Supreme Court seeks historic law-related photos

May 5, 2009

If you've come across an old photo relating to Indiana's legal profession, the Indiana Supreme Court would like to know. The high court is interested in gathering and preserving historic photos to tell the story of the Indiana judicial branch.

The court began collecting historic photographs of county courthouses several years ago and now wants to collect photos of Indiana attorneys and their training. The Supreme Court would like judges, courthouse employees, lawyers, other legal professionals and residents to take stock of their photographic memorabilia, including local bar association composite photos, law school class pictures, and photos of courthouses and law-related scenes.

John J. Newman, the former Indiana state archivist and Supreme Court director of Information Management, is coordinating the program. For more information, contact Newman at jnewman@courts.state.in.us, (317) 233-3017, or by fax at (317) 233-6586.
