Series Description:

This series consist of prints produced for Vanity Fair in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries.  The print was from several series produce for Vanity Fair, Judges Men of the Day, and Statesmen.  These prints within our collections focus on individuals who were judges. A given print also has corresponding text discussing the individuals.  Due to the extremely acidic and brittle of the text, they are stored in a separate folder then their corresponding print. An item level index is available.

Major of these prints were a gift from Marcus Cauffman Sloss.  Sloss (1869-1958) was an early Stanford Law School Alumni who later was a Judge of the Superior Court of the City and County of San Francisco and was a Justice of the California Supreme Court from 1906-1919.  He was also a trustee of Stanford University for thirty years, 1920-1950.
