This month's website is:

Floyd J. Mattice : Tokyo War Crimes Trial Scrapbook

A digitized archival collection of personal and professional papers documenting Floyd Mattice's time in Japan as the defense attorney for two of the accused Japanese war criminals. It is believed that the collection has been compiled by the secretary of Floyd Mattice. It eventually became the property of Mattice's granddaughter Linda M. Prall of Bloomington, Indiana. Ms. Prall presented the scrapbook to the Jerome Hall Law Library in July, 2015. Included collections are official orders; memorandums; newspaper clippings; photographs; souvenirs; maps; telegraphs; typed manuscripts; a three page handwritten Japanese character manuscript; and handwritten personal letters to Mattice.

Legal Websites of the Month Archive

As a service to OBS-SIS members, a MARC record of a legal website is distributed on the OBS-SIS discussion list each month. We encourage you to try it out and see if your library might want to include it in your online catalog.

The links below each site name will connect you to the MARC record for the resource.  From the record you can view the website itself by following the links, or view the MARC tagging format by exporting the record and selecting the appropriate MARC format.  Website suggestions and cataloging questions should be addressed to Keiko Okuhara.
