The 5300 items in the Papers of Lawrence Graham Brooks (1881-1981) span the years
1897 to 1981.
The collection includes: correspondence (letters received and carbons of letters sent); memoranda; agenda and minutes of meetings; reports; summaries; statistical tables; financial statements; lists; legal documents; legislative documents; holograph notes and drafts of Lawrence G. Brooks; typescripts
of speeches and writings; galleys; newspaper clippings including photo clippings; other printed items, both hard-bound and soft-bound; photographs; diaries.
The Papers of Lawrence Graham Brooks in the Manuscript Division of the Harvard Law
School Library reflect these four aspects of his personal, professional and public
life: (a) his professional activities and concerns as attorney and judge; (b) his
life-long ardent and courageous championship of civil liberties; (c) his efforts in
behalf of international cooperation and friendship; and (d) personal relationships
and interests. In this SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE major correspondents are listed as (e).
(a) Professional activities:
Lawrence Graham Brooks practiced law full-time from 1905 to 1928. From this period
of his law practice he retained a small number of briefs. The bulk of his judicial
papers consists of his opinions, findings and rulings while sitting on the First District
Court of Eastern Middlesex (1928-1970) and while a Judge in the Appelate Division
of the Northern District of Middlesex (1950-1970), both Massachusetts Courts. These
opinions are predominately in the form of carbon copies of the final draft, as Judge
Brooks handed them down. There are occasional corrections, and a very small number
are first drafts, in holograph form. Ancillary materials relating to Brooks' Court
work are an almost complete set of statistical compilations of the work of the Massachusetts
District Courts, together with annual circular letters reviewing the work of the Courts,
including recommendations (1929-1969). As a result of the hundreds of cases which
came before Judge Brooks, he became particularly alarmed by the wide-spread problem
of alcohol abuse and the drunken driver. Fourteen folders contain material relating
to his studies of this particular problem and his strong endorsement, both through
writing and speaking, of legislation requiring alcohol/blood-tests for drunken drivers,
mainly in the 1950's and early 1960's. Other related material deals with his concern
for the prevention of automobile thefts through anti-theft devices; with the extent
of illegal gambling; with juvenile delinquency; with crime, and with the rise in narcotics
During the Depression era of the 1930's Judge Brooks served as Chairman of the Massachusetts
Bar Association's Lawyers' Committee Cooperating with E.R.A. (Federal Emergency Relief
Act) to find or create employment for needy lawyers and to locate destitute lawyers
(b) Civil libertarian:
Throughout his life, Lawrence G. Brooks was a stout champion of civil liberties,
and his involvement in some of the tests of our constitutional guarantees of these
liberties is well documented in his Papers.
As early as 1912 Brooks declined membership in the A.B.A. because of its discriminatory
practices. Earliest evidence of his membership in the so-called Harvard Liberal Club
is a form letter listing his name. The period 1919 to 1928, before his ascension to
the bench and beginning with the post-World War I anti-communist and other war, labor
and immigration related hysterias, was Brooks' most active and intense period of involvement
in civil liberties battles. Folders labeled "Amnesty," "Civil liberties," "Deportations,"
and "Red raids" include Brooks' correspondence with the early members of the American Civil Liberties Union such as Roger Baldwin, correspondence regarding 1920 anti-sedition bills, clippings relating to the so-called
"Palmer raids" of January 1920, items relating to Brooks' participation in the defense
of William T. Colyer (COLYER v. SKEFFINGTON) in 1920, correspondence and clippings relating to his participation
in the fight for speaking facilities for controversial speakers in public auditoriums,
and the release of I.W.W. "political" prisoners (1922, 1923). Later materials illustrate
his alarm at some of the transgressions of the Cold War and McCarthy years following
World War II, and his active participation in the Civil Rights demonstrations of the
1960's, in particular by his participation in the Civil Rights protests in Selma, Alabama, in 1965.
(c) International concerns:
Following the end of World War I, concerned citizens throughout the world sought
out ways to educate their fellow citizens to the necessity of international cooperation.
Lawrence G. Brooks became actively involved in this effort by joining two organizations: the Boston branch
of the Foreign Policy Association and the Massachusetts Citizens' Committee on the World Court. Eight folders headed "Foreign Policy Association" (1921-1948) contain correspondence,
bulletins, agenda of meetings, and membership and financial matters, mainly of the
Boston branch of the F.P.A. Correspondence mostly concerns arrangements for speakers
at the Saturday luncheons, especially after LGB became chairman of the Boston branch
in 1945. Brooks continued his interest when they merged, in 1949, with two other organizations,
to become the United Council on World Affairs (now World Affairs Council). Six folders, headed " World Court," relate to Brooks' advocacy of U.S. membership in the so-called "World Court" (
Permanent Court of International Justice), which never came to pass. This group of items covers the period 1922 to 1935; it
includes correspondence with Professor Manley O. Hudson of the Harvard Law School and with members of the U.S. Congress.
Post-World War II international activities of Brooks included his membership on the
board of directors of the Hugh Cabot Memorial Fund, Inc. (1946-1951), a fund which, among other aims, promoted the exchange of medical data
with Russia, and his membership in the International Friendship League, Inc., which
promoted international understanding through exchange of personal letters between
individuals in various countries.
Throughout the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's, Brooks was active in other organizations
working for world-wide disarmament, U.S. membership in the League of Nations, relief of world-wide starvation, and the resettlement of refugees, such as the Committee for International Reduction of Armaments (1922), the League of Nations Non-Partisan Association (1924), the American Society for Russian Relief (1945-1947), and the Joint Anti-Fascist Refugee Committee (1948).
(d) Personal relationships and interests:
Many, but not all, of Judge Brooks' personal friendships and interests are documented
in these Papers. Correspondents in his GENERAL CORRESPONDENCE SERIES include public
figures, both national and local, journalist-friends, Harvard alumni, family friends,
and acquaintances. Items of his personal interest that are included range from genealogical
items to mayoral campaigns and zoning decisions in Medford, Massachusetts, the Ford hall Forum, Harvard College and Law School alumni matters, restoration of
Harvard's Memorial Hall, international sport including the U.S. flag-dipping at the
1972 Olympic Games, peace-time conscription, Republican Party concerns, and his love
of the outdoors, in particular the areas of his two summer residences, Pleasant Bay on Cape Cod and Jackson, New Hampshire. This wide range of interests is also reflected in his writings: he preserved most
of his speeches, memorials, testimonials, letters-to-the-editor, radio addresses,
and humorous pieces. Personal materials in the Papers also include a certain amount
related to his war time and post-war time (WW I) service in Washington and Chicago, respectively, 1918-1922: the A.B.A.'s Special Committee for War Service, the U.S.
Department of Labor's Employment Service, and the United States Railroad Labor Board.
(e) Major correspondents
Since Judge Brooks resided in the Boston area from the time of his graduation from
his preparatory school, and since most of his professional and non-professional activities
were of a local nature, he saw those with whom he associated on a regular bases, and
this personal contact eliminated the necessity for extended correspondences. The major
correspondents listed below are the most prominent names in his Papers; however, for
most of these names correspondence is limited to a few items. These are some of Judge
Brooks' correspondents: Wayne N. Aspinwall; Roger N. Baldwin; Francis Biddle; Robert F. Bradford; Edward Brooke; William Butler; Edward C. Carter; (Cardinal) Richard Cushing; Frederick W. Dallinger; Bob Dole; Robert F. Drinan; Frederick Gillett; Samuel Gompers; Carl R. Gray; Robert Haas; Richard W. Hale; Sidney Howard; Manley O. Hudson; Charles Evans Hughes; Hubert H.
