Tarlton Law Library Oral History Collection
This guide provides information on all available oral histories created by the Tarlton Law Library. The Tarlton Law Library began collecting oral history interviews in 1986, when a grant from the Texas Sesquicentennial Commission enabled the Library to conduct five oral history interviews. The interviewees were all graduates of The University of Texas School of Law whose careers shaped the Law School and the legal history of Texas: Robert Calvert, Joe R. Greenhill, Sr., and Jack Pope as Chief Justices of the Supreme Court of Texas, W. Page Keeton as the long-time dean of the Law School, and Gus M. Hodges as one of the school's most colorful professors. The Tarlton Law Library contines to publish oral history interviews, including most recently that of James A. Elkins Centennial Chair in Law Stanley M. Johanson.
