Lecture series explores most important Supreme Court justices
Our resident historian Dr. John Foster will explore the most important Supreme Court justices during a lecture series at the library. The series will begin with a talk about John Marshall at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 23, at our Main Branch.
Marshall was a giant of the early court. In his 34-year tenure as chief justice, he wrote decisions that continue to shape the United States. Foster’s talk is free to attend. Due to limited space, registration is required. Sign up on our website or call us at 440-255-8811 ext. 1.
