Superheroes in Court at Yale Exhibition

NYTimes.com – “You might think that a rare books librarian at a prestigious institution would be displaying something like Magna Carta. Or maybe the original publication of the opinion in Hawkins v. McGee, the 1929 contracts case filed by a surgery patient whose botched skin graft left him with a hairy hand. (The case is often taught in contracts classes and was made famous in “The Paper Chase.”) And of course the collection does have its medieval tomes and papers of esteemed jurists — it is, after all, considered to be one of the finest collections of rare law books in the world. But the library also has its playful side, and has archived, for example, an assortment of bobblehead dolls representing members of the Supreme Court of the United States.”
