American Law and Lawyers

Some years ago, I was very pleased to discover American Law and Lawyers, a legal newspaper of national scope and a particular interest in the federal regulatory state during its years of publication, 1939 to 1947.  The University of Minnesota’s Law Library had a complete run that it was willing to lend.  Turning the pages of the bound copies took some time, but I learned much that I otherwise would have missed.

Now Hein-on-Line has mounted a complete and word-searchable run of ALL in its law journal library.  If you work in this period, have access to that database, and have not previously consulted this source, check it out.
