HAPPY OPENING DAY!

In honor of the start of the 2015 Major League Baseball season take a step back in baseball history by viewing the Library of Congress American Memory Project collection of digitized vintage baseball cards.  The cards, from 1887-1914,  feature notable players including:  Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, King Kelly, Connie Mack, Christy Mathewson, Tris Speaker, Honus Wagner, and Cy Young.

The Amercian Memory Project also contains many valuable legal documents in the A Century of Lawmaking for a New Nation collection from the Continental Congress, the Constitutional Convention, and United States Congress.

In Memorium: Henry G. Manne

Professor Henry G. Manne died on January 17. Manne served as Dean of George Mason Law School from 1986 until 1997, and George Mason University Foundation Professor until 1999. The school’s Henry G. Manne Moot Court Competition for Law & Economics and the Henry G. Manne Program in Law and Economics Studies are named for him.

Professor Manne was designated one of the founders of the field of law and economics by the American Law and Economics Association. He launched the Law and Economics Center at Emory University and the University of Miami before bringing it to George Mason. Lauded as a cultural laureate of the Commonwealth of Virginia, he was the driving force behind the many innovations in legal education implemented at George Mason.

Please take a moment to browse the law library’s memorial exhibit in the atrium display case.
