Louis Brandeis legal papers

 Unprocessed Material
Identifier: 1973_430-UA

Content Description

Consists of papers received from Justice Brandeis' Boston law practice. Brandeis and fellow Harvard Law School graduate Samuel D. Warren established the legal firm Warren and Brandeis in 1879. The firm's name changed several times to reflect changing personnel; the name Nutter, McClennen and Fish was adopted in 1929. This collection consists largely of correspondence, much of it regarding financial transactions and estates, as well as account books. Most of this material was microfilmed as part of the microfilm edition of the Papers of Louis Dembitz Brandeis at the University of Louisville.
