Quinney Law Library Debuts Fordham Digital Collection

June 3, 2015.

The Quinney Law Library Digital Collections department is pleased to announce the Jefferson B. Fordham (1905-1994) Digital Collection. The collection contains letters, speeches, articles, and photographs, generously donated by the Fordham family.

Fordham, a vocal supporter of individual rights and racial equality, dean of the University of Pennsylvania’s law school from 1952 until 1970, and professor of law at the University of Utah for over 19 years, was a beloved member of the Quinney Law School community. He was also a devoted husband to Rita Ennella Fordham, and father to Robert N. and William C. Fordham. We hope this collection will honor his memory as a dedicated educator and civil servant for generations to come.
