Historical Background

Charles T. McCormick served as professor of law at The University of Texas (1922-1926, 1940-1963), the University of North Carolina (1926-1931), and Northwestern University (1931-1940). He also served as dean of the law school at the University of North Carolina (1927-1931) and The University of Texas (1940-1949). During his tenure as dean, McCormick led the UT Law School through the difficult war years, won approval for a new building, and is widely credited for his efforts to improve the curriculum, the faculty, and the school's national reputation. He was an authority on evidence, damages, and federal court procedure, and published extensively in those areas.

Contents of the Collection

The School of Law Files (1940-1961) document McCormick's service on numerous law school and university committees, and contain correspondence and other material on his appointment and resignation as dean of the Law School. The Sweatt v. Painter and TSUN Files (1947-1949) relate to McCormick's testimony in Sweatt v. Painter and his role as administrator of the Texas State University for Negroes Law School, and thus help document the history of racial integration at the University of Texas. University of Texas Committee Files (1944-1945) contain minutes and documents of the "Special Committee on the Interrelations of the Administrative Council, the Executive Committee, and the General Faculty", a faculty committee (with McCormick as a member) appointed by UT President Homer Rainey to address issues of faculty governance, tenure and academic freedom. General Correspondence Files (1920-1964) contain exchanges with other scholars and members of the legal profession on a variety of subjects, and shed light on McCormick's views on the law, politics, academia, and legal education. There is considerable discussion of faculty members and faculty politics at the law schools of Yale, The University of Texas, and the University of North Carolina. Publication & Research Files (1925-1963) contain drafts, correspondence, notes, research materials, and financial records for McCormick's casebooks on evidence, damages, and federal courts, and the dozens of law review articles he authored. Speech Files (1940-1959) contain drafts, correspondence, and other material for speeches about the UT Law School and on legal subjects, including several given during World War II about the Law School's contributions to the war effort. His classroom activities are documented in the Teaching files (1925-1963). The Organizations Files (1940-1962) document his work on drafting the Uniform Rules of Evidence for the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, and his activities with the American Association of Law Schools, the Oliver Wendell Holmes Devise Committee, bar associations, and numerous other groups. The Personal Files (1917-62) include financial records, ephemera, Army service records, wills, and records relating to his philanthropy, church activities, and travels.
