Official court photographs from the New York State Supreme Court are included. Subseries II contains material concerning The True and The Just (1969), a documentary film portraying jury duty and commissioned by the Department Committee on Court Administration. Items include correspondence, reports including an official report to the Department Committee and reports documenting film sales, as well as a scrapbook that contains newspaper clippings, press releases, and transcripts of television interviews.
