    Branch Activities

    The Branch History

    The branch engaged an historian from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln to write a history of the district, but progress has been delayed. A completion date is not fixed at this time.

    The History Prize

    On March 27, 2002 the Nebraska branch announced the Judge Robert Van Pelt History Prize

    Videotaped Interviews with Judges

    Chief Bankruptcy Judge Timothy J. Mahoney, Vice President of the Nebraska branch, oversaw a project to videotape interviews with Nebraska's federal judges who had recently retired or taken senior status. Professor Richard Shugrue, of the Creighton School of Law, conducted the interviews using the television production facilities at Creighton. These interviews are available in streaming video on the University Law Library's web site.

    Archives Project

    At the time judges retire or assume senior status, as the case may be, they are given a copy of the branch's " Resolution for Preservation of Historically Significant Materials."
