The Cincinnati campus of Hebrew Union College hosts the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives. The center holds the personal papers of Louis Marshall, a notable attorney who practiced in New York and was involved in significant social/legal issues, including the rights of minorities and immigrants. Among the cases he argued before the U.S. Supreme Court were Frank v. Morgan, 237 U.S. 209 (1915) regarding habeas corpus and Nixon v. Herndon, 273 U.S. 536 (1927) concerning voting rights of African-Americans. The papers have not been digitized at this time, but the Center invites scholars to use their materials.
