"Highlights from the National Bankruptcy Archives" on Display in Biddle Law Library

Biddle has created a new exhibit that showcases some of the materials culled from the National Bankruptcy Archives. (More after the jump.)


Since October 2000, the National Bankruptcy Archives has been collecting organizational records, personal papers, and other special collections that document the history of bankruptcy law in the United States. The Archives contains over 200 cubic feet of letters, notes, reports, proceedings, oral histories and other important records that reflect the activities of some of the fields' key figures and organizations. The Archives also actively collects new collections of historical importance.

As a repository dedicated to collecting materials related to bankruptcy law's past, present, and future, this is truly a one-of-a-kind archives. The exhibit displays just a sampling of the materials we house. You can find out more about the collections currently maintained by the Archives by visiting the National Bankruptcy Archives website--or, you can contact me directly.
