Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
The Case Files Series contains information pertaining to civil rights cases the LSCRRC directly participated in, referenced in researching for other cases, or collected to augment their civil rights research collection. This includes brochures, handbooks, affidavits, case histories, summaries, court papers, and legal documents. A partial index to the files that lists all the subject topics and provides a key to the filing system can be found in Box 5 Folders 73-75 and Box 10 Folder 1. A letter code precedes each case number with B denoting briefs, C-civil cases, M-memorandums by students, Pet-Petition, and R-dealing with federal law, as well as several codes that have not been deciphered.
Arranged roughly by case number.
