Subseries 4. University of Pittsburgh School of Law, 1954-1957

Scope and Content Notes:

The papers are arranged chronologically and consist of four sections: 1) notes, reports and memorabilia; 2) Law Reviews and anniversary publication; 3) handwritten class notebooks; and 4) Thornburgh's annotated textbooks. Publications in the second section consist of The University of Pittsburgh Law Review (1954-1957) as well as Pitt Magazine's coverage of the seventy fifth anniversary of the Law School (1970). The Class notebooks section rather remarkably consists of twenty-two handwritten notebooks from each law school class, every semester. Of particular interest, too, are textbooks with his annotations, and one with a fetching pin-up picture inside the cover.
