Since 1985 the Society has conducted 20 Oral History Programs, designed to recognize the contributions of individuals who have had a major impact on the Florida judicial system and to record those contributions for posterity. The programs -- held in various locations across Florida -- have been preserved in the Society's archives.
Following are the Oral History Programs conducted by the Florida Supreme Court Historical Society, listing name of the honoree, location and program date:
Long time Society activist Russell Troutman of Winter Park interviewed the most recent four Justices in the video presentations designed to improve public understanding of the courts and the need for adequate judicial funding.
"Research shows that a large segment of the public lacks understanding of, and appreciation for, the third branch of government," Troutman said. "Ignorance and apathy threaten our cherished American system of government. Better education and understanding are essential to protect our heritage."
