As everyone may know by now, tomorrow is the election in the state of Wisconsin for Supreme Court. We thought we would highlight this event with a little history information about the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Our Wisconsin Blue Books collection remains the primary one-volume reference source about the state, documenting the organization of the state’s three branches of government (legislative, executive, and judicial). Our collection dates back to 1853 and includes all sorts of information on Wisconsin government.
This image on the left is from the 1907 Blue Book. It has sketches of the Supreme Court Judges.
If you search "Supreme Court" in the collection you will find tons of sketches and interesting information. Take a look and see what you can find.
