The papers of George D. Braden consist of correspondence and a curriculum vitae and were originally opened for research in 1984 as part of the Truman Libraryís Miscellaneous Historical Documents Collection (MHDC 515).
The correspondence mostly consists of letters exchanged between Braden and Sherman Minton, written while Minton was serving as U.S. Senator from Indiana (1935-1941), Administrative Assistant to President Roosevelt (1941), Judge of the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (1941-1949), and Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court (1949-1956). Braden served as Mintonís law clerk in 1941 and their correspondence pertains to their personal relationship as well as court cases, Mintonís fellow Justices of the Supreme Court, and his judicial philosophy. The collection also includes a few letters to Braden from other Minton law clerks and Bradenís curriculum vitae, which he sent to the Library in 1984.
The Library also has a collection of the papers of Sherman Minton, consisting of opinions written by Minton during his years on the Supreme Court with related correspondence and notes.
