Description

The papers cover two distinct periods of Judge Lévitt's life. The first group covers roughly the years 1927-1937 when he taught at the Brooklyn Law School of St. Lawrence University (1927-1930), his professional and political activities in Connecticut from 1930-1933, and his service as a Special Assistant Attorney General of the U.S. (1933-1935, 1936-1937), as a Representative of the U.S. Department of Justice on a Committee of Advisors on the Codification of Nationality Laws of the U.S. (1933-1935), and as a Judge of the U.S. District Court of the Virgin Islands (1935-1936). These papers contain his study of, and research materials in, international treaties, nationality and comparative law; his court papers; and some personal/professional miscellany. The second group consists mainly of research material which Judge Lévitt collected and received in connection with his study of the crisis in Rhodesia following its Unilateral Declaration of Independence on November 11, 1965, and with his proposals and efforts for a reconciliation between Rhodesia and the British Crown.
