, 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.
