    The Branch History
    The branch is working with authors Mark Scherer, Charles & Mary Caldwell Martin Professor of Western American History at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, and John Wunder, Emeritus Professor of history at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, to produce a written history of the district.

    Then Chief Bankruptcy Judge Timothy J. Mahoney 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
