Women Lawyers at the Department of Justice, 1937

Tallies of women lawyers in the federal government during the New Deal are hard to come by, so whenever I stumble upon one, I like to circulate it.  At right is a list of the "Portias" of the Department of Justice, circa 1937.  It is from the Personal Papers of Gordon Dean, box 5, entry A1: 140, RG 60 at National Archives 2.
