Series 10, Warren & Brandeis/Brandeis, Dunbar & Nutter (WB), 1881-1947

Our final series, series 10, was acquired after filming began from Nutter, McClennen & Fish, successor to Warren & Brandeis/Brandeis, Dunbar & Nutter. The law records document the many facets of Brandeis' career as a practicing attorney in Boston, as well as the continuing association with the firm after he joined the court.

These files document Brandeis as an estate and trust attorney in the 1880 - 1910 period; unfortunately, the more important corporate case files, where Brandeis excelled as an attorney, have been destroyed. There is also a substantial body of correspondence relating to personal property, summer cottage inquiries, and the settlement of both the Justice's and Mrs. Brandeis' estates, as well as a file on the Harvard Law School Association. Some headings supplement material filmed in our first series, NMF, reflecting Brandeis as the "people's attorney," and includes, among other things, additional material on the New York Garment Workers' Strike and Arbitration, public utilities, the Boston Elevated, and the West End Improvement Society. Bound volumes of legal diaries, lent to us by Nutter, McClennen and Fish for this microfilm edition, and cash and trial balance ledgers and other financial records from the two law, firms round out this series.

Following a law office procedure which gave an accession number to each folder title created, we have filmed this material in the original accession number order as found on the file folder; a title page identifies each new entry.

Not filmed, but available in the collection are large numbers of Brandeis checks and bank statements. An additional quantity of will and estate material has been restricted by the donor, who may permit access to qualified researchers. Information regarding access to that restricted material, as well as a list of those files, may be obtained from the University of Louisville Archives and Records Center.
