Collection Description & Creator Information
The Nadine Taub Collection documents her role as co-counsel for Sally Frank during Frank's thirteen-year legal battle against Ivy Club, Tiger Inn, University Cottage Club, and Princeton University. The majority of the collection is comprised of legal documents including legal briefs, motions, orders of the court, notices of hearings, memoranda of law, supporting appendices, affidavits, certifications of service, and depositions, which were submitted by Sally Frank and her co-counsel as well as attorneys Russell H. Beattie Jr. for Ivy Club, Peter W. Williamson for University Cottage Club, and John O'Brien for Tiger Inn. Stenographic transcripts of the fact-finding conferences and court hearings, as well as correspondence to and from Nadine Taub, Sally Frank, and other counsel can be found in this collection.
Extensive research material pertaining to Princeton University's history and its affiliation with Ivy Club, Tiger Inn, and the University Cottage Club can be found within the minutes, reports, newspaper clippings, campus publications, correspondence, deeds, memoranda, and charter information which were collected by Sally Frank's team (as well from the other parties) during the fact-finding investigation and conferences. The material collected was used in creating over two hundred stipulations of fact and law and provided evidence within legal briefs presented to the court. Also included are photocopies of legal court proceedings decided upon by the New Jersey state and federal courts relating to discrimination.
