    DID YOU KNOW?

    In 1943, UofL law librarian Pearl Weiler (later Von Allmen) began to compile excerpts of letters written to her and others in the Law School, sending the resulting newsletter to alumni and others affiliated with the school who served during WWII. Last week, the Law Library added those newsletters to its digital collections.
