Harry A. Blackmun Papers at the Library of Congress

The Library of Congress has announced that their
Manuscript Reading Room "has made available online
selected materials from the papers of Harry Andrew Blackmun.

Of interest to researchers and academics, the site includes 38
hours of oral history video interviews and the transcript of this
oral history project. The 510-page transcript is only available
as JPEG images of the original print manuscript (not text or PDF),
and the interview videos are similarly copy-protected in their Real
Audio file format. Small samples from the Blackmun Papers
collection are available, including pages from draft opinions
and handwritten notes from case files. These samples are
intended to highlight the collection, and are not provided for
the benefit of research via this webpage."
