The Robert H. Jackson Center

Take a drive to Jamestown, Chautauqua County, New York to see the Robert H. Jackson Center, dedicated to the life and legacy of one of New York State’s and America’s most influential constitutional and international legal figures.  He was a local attorney, United States Solicitor General, United States Attorney General and an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. By appointment of President Truman, Jackson temporarily left the Supreme Court in 1945 and 1946 to serve as United States Chief of Counsel for the prosecution of Axis war criminals in the European theater.  Jackson assembled a small, very talented staff for that project, working with France, Russia and the United Kingdom on what became known as the International Military Tribunal, the first of the Nuremberg Trials.

The Jackson Center, at its facility and through its comprehensive and ever-developing digital archive, makes information available —including primary documents, film, audio, photographs and more—regarding Jackson’s contributions to the significant evolution of federal law, the Supreme Court of the United States, the legal profession, and the development of international criminal law. The Center hosts exhibits, archives and educational programs at its facility in Jamestown, NY, as well as in partnership with institutions throughout the United States and abroad.

There are many events and programs at the site which can be seen at a very dynamic website: http://www.roberthjackson.org/the-center/  as well as a growing online community on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. You can visit the Center at 305 East Fourth Street, Jamestown, New York or call: 716-483-6646.
