8th Circuit Judges' Papers by Location


This is a list of federal judges in the 8th Circuit who have donated their papers collections to archival repositories. It is organized by location to help judges identify likely repositories for the donation of their papers, while also aiding researchers in finding collections. When a description of a collection, also known as a finding aid, is available online, a link to the finding aid has been embedded in the judge's name.
