Oral History Records

Since 1987, the Ninth Judicial Circuit Historical Society has been collecting the oral histories of judges and lawyers who have made significant contributions to the development of law in the western United States and the Pacific islands. The project’s purpose is to create an archive of primary data documenting the legal profession in the western United States so that future generations will be able to study how—and by whom—our society was governed. We are also pleased to list below some oral histories in the collections of fellow historical organizations. Please contact them directly for questions about access to their collections.
