Weekend Roundup

  • "Solano County [California] Superior Court officials are seeking historic items related to the Old Solano Courthouse or items related to the legal history of Solano County for display."  Hat tip.
  • From Biddle Blog (the blog of the University of Pennsylvania Law School library): some highlights from the papers of William Ephraim Mikell (1868-1944).
  • Congratulations to former LHB Guest Blogger Mark S. Weiner, upon being awarded a Fulbright to Salzburg Austria in 2014-15.  His earlier Fulbright to Iceland yielded some fascinating posts on LHB and a chapter in his Rule of the Clan.  In Salzburg, he will be teaching a course on U.S. constitutional law and a class on law in American film.  He intends to make documentary videos about Austrian and European conceptions of law, including one about Hans Kelsen.  His earlier documentary videos about law and legal history are here.
  • Some intriguing images, going as much to the history of NYC as NYU, appear in a post on NYU Law's website.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
