Supreme Court Society Presents Drawings by Former Chief Justice

The NH Supreme Court Society, a volunteer group dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of judicial history, will celebrate its formation next week at the NH Supreme Court John W. King library. The event will also serve as the premiere of an art exhibition, Judicial Notice: The World Through the Eyes of Chief Justice Robert Peaslee, that was organized by the Supreme Court Society.

In 2007, Mary Searles of the John W. King New Hampshire Law Library discovered a tan envelope – bulging with drawings of litigants and lawyers from the late Victorian period – in the library’s basement.

The Supreme Court Society’s show next week is an exhibition of that collection of caricatures and drawings created from 1900-1902 by Robert Peaslee, Chief Justice of the NH Supreme Court from 1924-1934. Organizers hope that the gallery will provide a judge’s-eye-view of the court, attorneys and their clients at the turn of the century.

The show will take place on May 15 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the John W. King Library at the NH Supreme Court, One Charles Doe Drive, in Concord.

RSVP by e-mail to Julie Morris or call her at 603-520-8301.
