The Historical Society of the United States Courts in the Eighth
Court of Appeals Branch
2002 Annual Report of the Court of Appeals
of the Historical Society of the
United States Courts in the Eighth Circuit
(from annual Board of Directors meeting, September
The Appeals branch's primary project is publication of a history of the
Eighth Circuit, for which Professor Jeffrey Morris was hired.
The seven-chapter manuscript has been drafted and sent to the Court of
Appeals judges, Judge Peterson, and the University of Missouri Press.
As the University of Missouri Press feels the manuscript is lengthy,
the branch is also pursuing other publishers: University of
Nebraska, University of Minnesota, and the GPO, which printed the
Fourth Circuit's history. A revised draft will be sent later this year.
The peer review process will take six months, and then production
will take a further one and a half years.
Other Appeals activities are the John F. Dillon essay contest, with
the 2001-2002 academic year award going to Evan Simone.
