Gift of
Judge Robert H. Bork

Robert H. Bork

Although best known for his prominence as a federal circuit judge on the highly-visible U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit from 1982 until his resignation in 1988, Judge Bork's extensive collection of approximately 100,000 items documents the full range of his many roles as a lawyer in private practice, a professor at the Yale Law School, the Solicitor General during the Watergate crisis, and a well-known public intellectual. The papers show the evolution of his ideas on the administration of justice, the judicial function, and antitrust law, as well as his wide service on the boards of many foundations, public interest groups, federal agencies, and independent committees.
