An Anecdotal History of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, 1801-1976

The Court, 1977 - 144페이지
"This is not intended in any sense as a formal history of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. Anecdotal and episodic, its only purpose is to point up the great traditions of a great Court, a Court unique in origin yet an integral part of the federal system. It has been written as time and opportunity provided and appeared originally for the most part in the Journal of the Bar Association of the District of Columbia from January to May 1966. It has now been rewritten to a large extent together with such emendations as were found necessary and the addition of new material, in order to point up the fact that the Court actually had its genesis in that of the Republic now celebrating in this Year of Our Lord its bicentennial year"--Foreword.
