The Honorable John Minor Wisdom
Judge of the United States Court of Appeals, 5th Circuit
May 17, 1905-May 15, 1999

Hyper linked to this web page are 20 pages of Judge Wisdom’s personal notes of his account on what transpired in 1963 when the 5th Circuit of the US Court of Appeals was accused of court packing their race cases.

Each file’s size is quite large since they are actual reproductions of the papers. Every attempt was made to keep the file size down without compromising the quality and readability of the notes.
