224 Linear Feet — 168,210 Items
Abstract Or Scope
North Carolina lawyer and federal judge. The legal and judicial papers of U.S. Circuit Court Judge James Braxton Craven span the years 1961-1977.

Wainwright; and appeals from administrative boards and commissions, including the FCC, SEC, NLRB, and others.

The correspondence between judges is particularly significant, revealing the intersection of personal belief and the carrying out of judicial processes in the lower and higher courts. The collection also includes a précis outlining the legal philosophy and the highlights of Craven's career, but contains very little personal material.
