Judge Pallmeyer, as the Chair of Northern District’s Historical Association, sent a letter to the Chicago Association of Law Libraries seeking any historical information about the Court and significant cases before it that local firms or practitioners may have in their archives. Here is Judge Pallmeyer’s request in her own words:
We are aware that some of the local law firms themselves maintain archives that might relate to our court’s history. Might your firm maintain such an archive? If you have retained materials that might be of interest to our Association, would you please contact me? One of the members of our Association, or a legal historian who is working with us, would very much appreciate the opportunity to review them. I can be reached at (312) 435-5636 or by e-mail CourtHistory_ILND@ilnd.uscourts.gov.
If you have something, send it on and let them know you saw the request here.
