Society Information

The Supreme Court Historical Society  (SCHS) was incorporated in 1974 for the purpose of expanding public awareness of the history and heritage of the Supreme Court of the United States.  SCHS was established on the recommendation of an ad hoc committee of attorneys, legal scholars, and other concerned citizens appointed to advise Chief Justice Warren Burger on the need for such an organization.  The Society is funded through membership contributions, gifts, grants, and an endowment.
