Summary
Correspondence, memoranda, oral histories, speeches, writings, reports, case files, interviews, briefs, orders, opinions, motions, family papers, and other papers relating chiefly to Edwards's legal career as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals (District of Columbia Circuit). Legal cases primarily involve administrative law and relate to the rule making of federal independent agencies. Subjects range from antitrust matters, civil rights, criminal cases, environmental law, freedom of speech, labor rights, to the separation of powers. Cases include the Microsoft anti-trust case (United States v. Microsoft Corp.), the case concerning release of the tape about the space shuttle Challenger disaster (New York Times Co. v. National Aeronautics and Space Administration), the "don't-ask-don't tell" military regulation case (Steffan v. Perry), a book review libel case (Moldea v. New York Times), the case involving a change in the exemption for intelligence sources and methods of the Freedom of Information Act (Sims v. Central Intelligence Agency), and a Georgia voting rights case (Busbee v. Smith). Includes files pertaining to computer technology initiatives improving the efficiency of court operations, reorganization of the Clerk's Office and Legal Division, construction of an annex to the Court of Appeals's courthouse, and the monthly staff newsletter, "The Circuit Writer." Includes files pertaining to his article entitled "The Journey from Brown v. Board of Education to Grutter v. Bollinger: From Racial Assimilation to Diversity," (2004), as well as his writings on dispute resolution, labor arbitration, the legal profession, collegiality and judicial decision making, and legal education.
Also documents his work as a labor arbitrator, his endeavors as part of a committee for the National Academy of Sciences identifying deficiencies in the nation's forensic science system, and his career as a professor at Harvard Law School, Cambridge, Mass., and the University of Michigan Law School, Ann Arbor, Mich. Biographical files include articles by Edwards, oral histories with him, and other autobiographical material documenting his life as an African American lawyer and judge.
