A o tiv itie s o f the Law Library during the Academlo Xear 1944-45 We have 103,257 volumee in our Law L ibrary, 1,050 o f which were added th is year. aocessloned th is year, 147 were g i f t s .

Of the number The fa cu lty

o f the Law School was very generous with g ift s to the lib r a r y , including 30 volumes given by the Libra­ ria n , Lieutenant Colonel Morse, and 23 volumes given by P rofessor Laube. gave us 1 6 volumes.

The Cornell U niversity Library I t i s rather unusual to receive

g i f t s from present law students, and we were, th ere­ fo r e , very pleased to add one volume each from Harry Hazelwood and Julian Jackson. Former Supreme Court J u s tic e , Ben Kenyon, o f Auburn, New *ork, gave us 570 volumes o f o ld English Reports which have been added to our duplicate c o lle c t io n , and which we hope to be able to use some day f o r trading purposes. We obtain a l l the material we p o ssib ly can eith e r by ou trigh t g i f t or through exchange agree­ ments.

Several years ago, we had a very good souroe

f o r the Iowa Reports, and then with the ohange o f lib r a r ia n s our supply stopped.

We then had a contact


with a former student o f the Cornell Law School who supplied us with the Iowa Reports at the lower p rice paid by Iowa lawyers u n til the time o f the war.

Col.

Morse, with great p e rsiste n ce , has fin a lly secured a fre e souroe f o r these rep orts.

They are now being

sent to him In Washington and he forwards them to us, as he has also done fo r the past two years with the Michigan Reports. Thanks to the good work o f Mrs. Moot, our new C lerica l A ssistan t, we now have a complete f i l e o f the recen tly started p u b lica tio n , Bench and Bar o f Minnesota.
