New Addition to the Oral History Program

October 11, 2012

On May 29, 2012, the oral history panel, An Early History of the United States Trustee Program: Three Pioneers Reflect, was filmed at the University of Pennsylvania. Moderated by Hon. Jean K. FitzSimon, United States Bankruptcy Judge for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the participants discussed the challenges that faced the program when it began, including varying degrees of acceptance by the judiciary and the bar, and how the program met those challenges. Panelists are Richard L. Levine, the first director and counsel of the Executive Office for United States Trustees; Irving H. Picard, the first U.S. Trustee appointed for the Southern District of New York (1979-1982); and Francis P. Dicello, the first U.S. Trustee for the District of Columbia and the Eastern District of Virginia (1979-1982). This program was developed and funded by the American College of Bankruptcy for donation to the National Bankruptcy Archives at the Biddle Law Library of the University of Pennsylvania
