A c tiv itie s o f the Law Library during the Academia Year 1942-43

We have a to ta l o f 100,852 volumes in our Law Library, 1,560 o f which were added th is year. Of the number accessioned th is year, 150 were g i f t s . We have been very fortunate in receiving many g if t s o f tex t boohs and miscellaneous volumes from the following alumni and friends* J. H. Agate '0 3 o f Cleveland, Ohio 85 volumes. Isaac A lliso n Estate, Elmira, New York 1000 volumes. Levi Ginsburg ‘ 13 o f Elmira, New York 29 volumes. Charles H. L evitt of New York City - 5 volumes. Benjamin E. Levy, Elmira, New York - 100 vols. Judge Ely W. Personlus '98 o f Elmira, New York - a truck load o f books. Arthur H. Smith, C lifton Springs, New York 172 volumes. Mrs. E. G. Wyckoff, Ithaca, New York 353 volumes. We have received a great many books and periodi­ cals from the Judge Advooate General's Library in Washing­ ton, D. C.

The jjeriodicals enabled us to complete several


volumes of our .second sets of law reviews. I t le becoming increasingly d i f f i c u lt to seoure continuations to our foreign p e rio d ica ls, but we have been able to oomplete our volumes by d ilig e n tly writing fo r the missing parts. Our two sets o f McKinney's Laws of New York and also the Restatements that are on Reserve were In such great demand that we were very glad to be able to add another set o f each of these to our co llectio n at a very reasonable p rice. During the past year we have been able to add considerably to our foreign reports and statute seotions.

We obtained the following outstanding Items! New 3outh Wales Industrial Arbitration Reports

1902-1940, 39 volumes. Queensland Public Aots v .1 -1 0 . South African Law Reports

Cape Provincial

Division 1910-1941, 31 volumes. South Australia Statutes 1837-1936, 9 volumes. Tasmania Statutes 1826-1936, 7 volumes. Viotorlan Statutes revised to 1929, plus Annuals from 1930 to date. I have completed my f i r s t year as Dlreotor o f Libraries of the Judge Advocate General's O ffice at Washington, D. C.

My duties included the modernization -2 -


o f the large M ilitary Law Library for the use of the entire o ffic e .

I also had to equip the various branches of our

o ffic e with adequate separate lib r a r ie s .

Two complete

moves o f the o ffic e necessitated the moving of the entire library o f 50,000 volumes and retarded our development. Our la s t move was into adequate quarters where we oan properly expand.

We have now about oorapleted the con­

struction o f our main library and w ill begin the making o f a oatalogue fo r the entire lib ra ry .

We maintain four

branch o ffic e lib r a r ie s in d ifferen t parts o f the world which were established during the past year.

Some two

hundred fie ld lib r a r ie s were set up and sent out by us to our Judge advocates in every part o f the world.

I

am now startin g the modernization of eaoh of the eleven Service Command Judge Advocate lib r a r ie s .

These are

reasonably large and w ill require much personal attention. They are distributed thruout our United States, duties have been very valuable to me.

My

1 have not only

had the problems of constructing several law lib r a r ie s , but I have had experiences in handling a s ta ff of some ten persons.

We have Just completed a reorganization of

the entire research branch of our o f f i c e , which w ill come under the Jurisdiction o f our lib r a r y .

I fe e l that my

experiences are extremely helpful to me for use when I am able to return to Cornell Law Library. Lewis W. Morse Law Librarian
