Overview

Papers of Supreme Court Justices: Earl Warren, Part 2: Conference Memoranda, Series C: 1960_1963 consists of summaries of petitions before the U.S. Supreme Court. In these memoranda, the authors_usually clerks but often Chief Justice Warren himself_review petitions for a hearing before the Court, highlight the major issues involved in the petitioner_s claim, assess the existence of a substantial question of federal or constitutional law, and make a recommendation to grant or deny certiorari. Many of the documents include annotations and emendations that Warren and others made as the memoranda were circulated among the Supreme Court justices and clerks. The files are organized chronologically by term; within the term, the cases appear in numerical order under the appropriate category of the petition (appellate, miscellaneous, original, and sundry). Among the most interesting documents in the collection are the opinions in cases that deal with segregation, right to counsel, voting rights, subversive activities, search and seizure, labor unions and workers, and blue laws. Of note are some of Warren_s comments on cases that he considered important.
