Process of Preservation: Presentation

A collection of badly damaged leather books were restored and presented to the Dean as part of Preservation Week events.

The Edenfield Materials

Judge B. Avant Edenfield

    Georgia Law's Alexander Campbell King Law Library oversaw the preservation of a collection of United States Reports and other legal references. The project was funded by the A.S. Mitchell Foundation, on the board of which alumni Kenneth G. Vinson (J.D.'71) and Benjamin J. Vinson (J.D.'02) serve. The books, which include Supreme Court decisions from the 1880s to the 1920s, were badly damaged in a South Georgia fire and required preservation by conservators. The restored collection was presented to the law school community during Preservation Week 2016 in honor of the late Judge B. Avant Edenfield (J.D.'58), who served in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia.
