Harry A. Blackmun Papers at LC
From the Library of Congress:
"In anticipation of high research demand, the Manuscript Reading Room of the Library of Congress has made available online selected materials from the papers of Harry Andrew Blackmun (1908-1999). This site describes the collection in detail, provides a finding aid for the collection, reprints
the press release from the opening of the collection, and offers a selective but detailed bibliography."
"Of interest to researchers and academics, the site includes 38 hours of oral history video interviews and the transcript of this oral history project. The 510-page transcript is only available as JPEG images of the original print manuscript (not text or PDF), and the interview videos are similarly copy-protected in their Real Audio file format. Small samples from the Blackmun Papers collection are
available, including pages from draft opinions and handwritten notes from case files. These samples are intended to highlight the collection, and are not provided for the benefit of research via this webpage."
