Weekend Roundup

  • From the Yale Law Library Rare Book Blog: more highlights from the Lillian Goldman Library's Taussig Collection (this post features justice of the peace manuals).
  • Policy History Conference goers be advised that registration and hotel rates go up May 1.  Also, the  luncheon speaker on Friday, June 6, will be Steven Pincus, Yale University, on the topic “War and State Formation.”
  • Update. This just in: If you're in Washington on May 3, you can take tea with legal historian Linda Przybyszewski, Notre Dame, at the Willard Intercontinental, in an event co-sponored with famed DC bookstore Politics and Prose.  She will be giving an illustrated talk on her new book, The Lost Art of Dress (Basic Books), which “tells the story of the 'Dress Doctors,' who spoke on radio programs and at clubs all over the country to millions of American women, teaching them how to dress beautifully and thriftily for the 20th century.”  But maybe you should rethink that outfit before you go.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
