The 12,000 items in the papers of Calvert Magruder
(1893-1968) span the years 1920 to 1965, beginning with the notes he
assembled for the courses he taught at the Harvard Law School. The
collection includes correspondence; memoranda; agenda of meetings;
reports; legal documents; bibliographies; drafts of opinions and
speeches; research notes; telegrams; clippings and other printed
items; sets of index cards containing citations. The material is in
handwritten, typed, printed and photo-duplicated form.
papers of Calvert Magruder relate to his professional career as a law
teacher, judge and public servant. The largest group of papers
consists of materials on the cases in which he wrote opinions (33
manuscript boxes). These case materials include first drafts of his
opinions; correspondence with his "brethren" concerning his and their
own drafts; slip-sheets; final form of his opinions; research notes
on the legislative history for some of the problems raised by
specific cases and briefs and petitions.
occasionally served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd, 5th,
6th, 9th, and District of Columbia Circuits, and on the U.S. District
Courts for Massachusetts and for Puerto Rico, and he kept with his
papers files on some of the important cases which were on appeal
before these courts, such as CROWN ZELLERBACH v. FTC (9th Circuit
before Pope, Magruder, Merill); PEARL ASSURANCE CO., Ltd. v.
HARRINGTON (U.S. District Court, Massachusetts, before Felix
Frankfurter, Circuit Justice, Magruder, Circuit .Judge, and Ford,
District Judge); UNITED STATES v. COSTELLO (2nd U.S. Circuit before
Magruder, Moore, Friendly). There is also material on some of the
cases in which he sat on the U.S. Emergency Court of Appeals to which
he was designated a judge in 1942.
By far the most interesting
case file which Judge Magruder kept is that of CROWN KOSHER SUPER
MARKET v. GALLAGHER, a civil action brought before the U.S. District
Court for the District of Massachusetts. Magruder sat on this case as
a member of a three-judge court. The case involved the so-called
"Sunday Blue Laws", and Judge Magruder, writing for the majority
(Magruder and Woodbury), declared the Massachusetts "Lord's Day"
statute unconstitutional. The case, combined with similar ones,
eventually reached the U.S. Supreme Court as McGOWAN v. MARYLAND
(366U.S.420) in which Chief Justice Warren wrote for the Court,
upholding the constitutionality of Sunday laws of the different
states, and in which Justice Frankfurter wrote a long, separate
concurring opinion. The eight folders on this case in the Magruder
papers include his own drafts and memos, also briefs, petitions and
other legal documents; there is a large amount of fascinating
correspondence. Calvert Magruder's correspondence files are limited
to a few selected exchanges with fellow judges on his own and other
The most significant and extensive of these
sequences is his correspondence with Felix Frankfurter which spans
the years 1928 to Frankfurter's death in 1965. Magruder had been a
law student of Frankfurter's, and he and Frankfurter were colleagues
together on the Law School faculty for 18 years; they were close
personal friends, and when both left within a year of each other to
join their respective courts they kept in close touch, commenting on
each other's opinions and on court problems. Magruder was also
thought of very highly by Luis Munoz Martin, Governor of Puerto Rico,
because Magruder took a special interest in the political status of
Puerto Rico and its relation with the United States, and his
discussions with the Governor in this correspondence, which spans the
years 1953 to 1959, are highly illuminating.
Latin-American country with which Magruder became actively involved
was Bolivia. His Papers contain four folders dealing with the
workings and findings of the Joint Bolivian - United States Labour
Commission which studied the labor conditions in Bolivia,
particularly in its mines. This Joint Commission was sponsored by the
International Labour Office of the United Nations, and Judge Magruder
served as Chairman of the American Section of the Joint Commission.
The Commission carried out its investigations during February and the
first half of March of 1943, and its report, drafted simultaneously
in English and Spanish and included in the Papers, was signed at La
Paz on 14 March, 1943. Magruder travelled throughout Bolivia during
the six weeks of the investigation, most of the time at elevations
above 11,000 feet, and his day-by-day correspondence with Bolivian
and American mine experts, officials of the International Labour
Office and the Bolivian Government, the American Embassy, the U.S.
Department of State and Labor, are truly fascinating. The most
interesting item perhaps is a carbon copy of a five-page letter,
typed, single-spaced, which Magruder sent to Secretary of State,
Cordell Hull, on March 22, 1943. In this report, marked
"confidential" by Magruder, he presents to the Secretary many of his
own personal observations on the Bolivian mission, particularly its
relation to various Bolivian officials, and the hopes, true or false,
which the presence of the Commission had raised.
One of Judge
Magruder's most important post-retirement assignments was his
Chairmanship of the President's Advisory Panel on Ethics and Conflict
of Interest in Government. This report was submitted to President
Kennedy on March 22, 1961. Magruder's files on his work on this Panel
include papers outlining the scope of and commentary on the inquiry,
newspaper editorials, correspondence, a carbon copy of the typed
report, and a personal letter of President John F. Kennedy, dated 10
February 1961, addressed to Judge Magruder, thanking him for his
willingness to serve on this Panel.
There is a small group of
teaching material, consisting mainly of excerpts from case-books and
federal reports, and drafts and reprints of some of Magruder's
occasional writings and speeches.

Law School colleague, Felix Frankfurter who
proceeded to the

appointment to the

- SERIES V. TEACHING AND WRITING: RESEARCH, NOTES, CASES.
The material in this Series consists mainly of material which Magruder
collected for his Torts course. He used partial chapters and cases from the
following three casebooks: Seavey and Thurston: CASES ON TORTS; Seavey, Keeton
and Keeton: CASES AND MATERIALS ON THE LAW OF TORTS; Ames and Smith: CASES ON
THE LAW OF TORTS (SUPPLEMENTARY by Seavey, Thurston and Magruder). Some of the
chapters which Magruder used are unidentified; possibly they are from his own
casebook (with Ames): CASES ON THE LAW OF TORTS.
Additional material which Magruder included are pages from the Federal
Reporter, newpaper clippings, and handwritten notes and comments.
The material in this Series is in exceptionally poor physical
condition, and needs to be handled with great care. Period covered is
presumably 1920 to 1939, although very few items are dated.
