Judge Gerald Goodwin Scrapbooks Donation

Monday, August 02, 2021

On July 30, 2021 Mary Goodwin and Robin Collmorgan donated seven scrapbooks detailing the life and legal career of Judge Gerald Goodwin.  The books contain newsclippings from 1968-2019, covering his time as a prosecutor, District attorney, District Judge, and Senior District Judge. These scrapbooks are an invaluable resource that complements the collection of papers donated in 2019 (8 cubic feet) that has already seen use by researchers here at The History Center and remotely.  The History Center hopes to have the scrapbook digital files to offer as downloads on our website soon, but until then the books are available for research at The History Center in our Reading Room.  Staff would like to thank Mrs. Goodwin for her hard work to organize this collection and for ensuring that her husband's papers are preserved for the use of current and future researchers.  

To use this collection or any of our other collections, please browse our website or contact The History Center at info@TheHistoryCenterOnline.com or 936-829-3543.
