Container List

Series III. People v. Goetz trial transcript, 1986–1987

Scope and Contents

Series III consists of the trial transcript of The People of the State of New York v. Bernhard Goetz, covering December 12, 1986 through June 16, 1987. The container list provides a guide to the contents of each lettered tab within each volume of the transcript, but see Box 8, Folder 1, for a detailed table of contents and an index to witness testimony.

Arrangement

Some of the volumes of the People v. Goetz trial transcript were housed in tabbed, three-ring binders. Loose volumes were similarly hole-punched and tabbed. The binders have been discarded, and all thirteen volumes have been transferred to folders, preserving their pre-assigned Roman numeral and tab designations.
