Series 8, Clipping Scrapbooks

Series 8 contains 69 clipping scrapbooks, arranged by subject and covering the years Brandeis was known as the "people's lawyer" of Boston. The scrapbooks contain material on widely divergent topics such as: gas, labor, anti-bribery legislation, Harvard Law School, privacy, street railways, competition, efficiency, insurance, freight rates, anti-trust, railroad mergers, Supreme Court nomination, Zionism, and birthday commemorations. (A complete list of the scrapbooks, in order filmed, follows.)

The majority of the scrapbooks contain only news articles, arranged in chronological order within each subject, with source and date written above. Some have indexes. Several of the scrapbooks contain material added later. Letters and clippings were pasted over the original material or on blank pages. These scrapbooks have been filmed as they were found. The several parts of a single clipping may not always be on consecutive frames. Because of the use of a book cradle, oversize material has been filmed sideways.

Scrapbooks entitled L.D.B. Clippings I and Clippings II, contain some especially interesting personal items, like a Brandeis and Wehle family tree, Adolph Brandeis' naturalization papers, and Louis' school report cards. The articles from non-English newspapers have not been translated.
