This transcript of an interview with Clarence S. Darrow was conducted by Agnes Wright Dennis of the Illinois Historical Survey in 1918. Having been a law partner of John P. Altgeld, Darrow discusses the Haymarket anarchist trial and pardon, and Altgeld's work as a Democratic governor. The microfilm reel contains correspondence between Darrow and George Murphy, Frank Murphy, and Moses L. Walker; letters by Ruby A. Darrow; letters concerning a speaking engagement at the University of Michigan in 1911; and a newspaper article concerning the Wishart-Darrow debate, held in Grand Rapids, Mich., in 1928.
The microfilm was made in 1971 from originals in the Michigan Historical Collections of the University of Michigan, and was given to the Survey by James Campbell.
