The Historical Society of the D.C. Circuit lost a past leadership giant on February 3, 2024. Stephen J. Pollak served the Society for over 30 years as Chair, President and member of the Board of Directors. He helped spearhead and lead the Society’s Oral History Program, personally conducting many of our over 135 oral histories. Steve brought a wealth of knowledge, a ruthless attention to detail, good humor, and a willingness to explore new methods to his work with the Society. We are forever grateful for his service and will miss greatly his energy, warmth and leadership.

Steve’s family will hold a memorial service honoring his life and career on Saturday, May 25, 2024. All are welcomed. Service details, Steve’s obituary and more information can be found here.
