This collection of over 400 photographs of Texas jurists was donated to the Tarlton Law Library by Justice Jack Pope in 1994. A large majority of the photographs were used by Ocie Speer in the creation of the book Texas Jurists 1836-1931. Justice Pope made additions to the collection to include more recent jurists. The photographs provide a visual history of Texas jurisprudence.
A related digital collection, Justices of Texas, 1836-1986, features photographs of justices of the Texas Supreme Court and judges of the Court of Criminal Appeals along with brief biographical sketches.
