Grover McCormick, Sr. Papers, 1886-196

Back in June of this year, the Marketing Department at SHSU highlighted one of our recently donated collections: the Grover McCormick, Sr. Papers, 1886-1968. The collection was donated by faculty member Cutty Gilbert and her family and contains correspondence, pictures, and other ephemera from her grandfather Grover McCormick, Sr. who was a lawyer in Memphis, Tennessee.

McCormick argued before the Supreme Court in Ashcraft v. Tennessee which dealt with self-incrimination and laid the foundation for Miranda v. Arizona and the establishment of Miranda Rights. McCormick was also the lawyer for Jerry Lee Lewis during his marriage to 13 year old Myra Gale Brown.

If you are interested in the Grover McCormick Papers, take a look at this wonderful video that the Marketing Department made for us about the donation of the collection and check out the accompanying article.
