From the U.S. Courts Newsroom:
A recent publication discusses the importance of federal judges’ papers as a documentary record of their careers and the work of the federal courts.
A Guide to the Preservation of Federal Judges’ Papers was first published in 1996 and has proved to be one of the most frequently requested publications from the Federal Judicial Center’s History Office. Many judicial biographies and court histories rely on the collections of judicial papers that federal judges donate to research libraries and archives. From these scholarly works come the educational materials that contribute to public understanding of the federal judiciary. This guide is designed to help judges when they are considering the historical value of their chambers papers and selecting a repository for donation of their personal records.
