Official Photographs of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia 1863 - 2013


Official photographs have been taken of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (previously the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia (1863 - 1936) and the District Court of the United States for the District of Columbia (1936 - 1948), typically in the years in which there was a change in the composition of the Court. The first such photograph was taken of the Cartter Court in 1863.

This exhibit contains all the official photographs of the Court taken from 1863 until 2013, the final year of the Lamberth Court, except that the official photos of the Clabaugh Court (1903 - 1914) and the Eicher Court (1942 - 1944) are not available. The photograph of the current Roberts Court will be added to this exhibit as soon as it is available.
