Michigan Supreme Court 1970-1988 [series]

The bulk of the Career/Professional group materials detail Williams' terms as a justice on the Michigan Supreme Court. These materials run to 47 linear feet and are arranged alphabetically by type of material. By mutual agreement between the Michigan Historical Collections and the Supreme Court of Michigan, the case files are closed to researchers. Other files in the Supreme Court series document the administration of the Supreme Court and the state court system and Williams' ability as a reformer in modernizing the Michigan courts.
