Byron White Court House under construction, February 1912.
In a nation that thrives under the rule of law, the ongoing life of a court is relevant to more than just those who have their day there. From the rough beginnings of frontier justice to the tough issues of electronic property rights, the history of the Tenth Circuit mirrors a broadly brushed picture of the struggles and tragedies, as well as the progress and good humor, of the citizens of its six states. We strive to engage the public with information that shows how legal history and our daily lives are not separate, but rather are interwoven. The Tenth Circuit Historical Society exists not only for lawyers and judges, but also for anyone else who finds history to be exciting, interesting, or instructive.
