Abstract:

Powell's service to legal "Professional associations" is extensively documented in thirty-five feet of records. Included here is his service as president of: the American Bar Association, 1964-65; the American College of Trial Lawyers, 1969-70; and the American Bar Foundation, 1969-71. Correspondence, working papers and draft reports of Powell's work on the President's (Johnson) Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice, and President Nixon's Blue Ribbon Defense panel are among the "Federal commissions, panels, and conferences" portion of these papers. The "Civic activities" subgroup includes documentation of Powell's service in three organizations that had significant influence on Virginia public policy concerning racial integration in public schools: the Richmond School Board, the Virginia Industrialization Group, and the Virginia Board of Education. Powell's civic, educational, and corporate "Board memberships" are documented in over eleven feet of records. In addition to papers dealing with board activities, records of Powell's legal representation of many of these organizations is present.

In addition to the significant and voluminous case files, and the general correspondence mentioned above, the "United States Supreme Court papers" include correspondence with fellow justices, memoranda, subject files and speech files. The category of subject files includes both those treating topics of interest and concern to Powell, and those dealing with the administration of Court business. The speech files include writings and interviews in addition to Powell speeches during his tenure as an Associate Justice. The "Retirement papers" include general correspondence, correspondence with Supreme Court justices, subject files, and case files. The case files are a result of Powell's sitting as an extra judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth and Eleventh Circuits.
