The Judge Walter Bordwell Papers concern both his private and professional life as lawyer and judge. The collection spans
the years 1835-1929, with the bulk of the material occurring from 1890-1912, during which his career was most active. There
is little material from 1915-1925 - the years between his retiring as Los Angeles Superior Court Judge and his death. The
material is grouped and arranged generally, but not strictly, in alphabetical order. Items within the groups are arranged
chronologically but with attached items left attached.
