Some Things About Mary

As Darcy Kirk noted in her February e-letter, Mary Whisner‘s Fall 2009 Law Library Journal article, “The United States Code, Prima Facie Evidence, and Positive Law,” was recently cited at length in Gonzalez v. Village of West Milwaukee, 2012 WL 313572 (7th Cir. Feb. 2, 2012).  I really enjoyed Mary’s most recent offering in LLJ’s recent tribute to Morris L. Cohen: “That Most Congenial Lawyer/Bibliographer”. Mary “browses” Cohen’s Bibliography of Early American Law to produce a collection of asides and lively interaction between U.S. History and Legal Bibliography.  I would not say that her article drove me to consult Cohen’s work (though I might dive into The Reporters to find out what Cranch & Wheaton are up to).  I am sure that even those who have taken Legal Bib in the last 20 years will fully enjoy joining Mary on her “trip to Nerdvana.”
