Repository description (extant): Founded in 1990, the Historical Society of the District of Columbia Circuit began its work by commissioning Professor Jeffrey Brandon Morris to write a history of the 200-year life of the D.C. Circuit courts: Calmly to Poise the Scales of Justice: A History of the Courts of the District of Columbia Circuit, a book completed in time for distribution at the Circuit's Bicentennial Celebration in March 2001.

In 1991, the Society began to record and transcribe the oral histories of judges, attorneys, and others who have played key roles in the Circuit's history. To date, 66 oral histories have been completed, and most are available in the Library of Congress, in the Library of the E. Barrett Prettyman U.S. Courthouse, and in the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. Some of the oral histories can be accessed from this website.
