Project Preserves Supreme Court History

The Tennessee State Library and Archives has taken on the monumental task of preserving 10,000 boxes of Supreme Court cases from the state’s birth to the 1950s. More than 20 employees are devoting half a day each day to the project. The case files largely were neglected in the attic of the Capitol until the Tennessee Supreme Court Historical Society began funding the effort in 2006.
