Historical Background

Bernard J. Ward, legal educator and authority on the federal courts, practiced general law in New Orleans, 1949-1953, and taught in the law schools at Loyola University, 1952-1953, at Notre Dame University, 1954-1968, and at the University of Texas at Austin, first as a visiting professor from 1966-1968, and then as a full professor from 1969-1982. At Texas he taught federal courts, remedies, Texas procedure, and a seminar on the Supreme Court. A member of the American Law Institute, Ward spoke frequently at educational conferences for the federal judiciary, and was highly regarded by both students and federal judges. He drafted the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, which are used throughout the federal courts, and was co-author of "Appeals to Court of Appeals," a well-known treatise. Ward served as reporter to the Advisory Committee on Appellate Rules of the Judicial Conference of the United States 1961-1968; the Standing Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure of the Judicial Conference, 1970-1971; and the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules, 1971-1978. He was a member of the Standing Committee from 1978 until his death on May 7, 1982.

Contents of the Collection

Correspondence, printed material, minutes, memoranda, and literary productions document Bernard J. Ward's activity in the legal profession, both as scholar and public servant. Ward the public servant takes primacy over Ward the teacher, not only by the sheer preponderance of material on his work on the federal rules committees, but also by the insight that material provides about its creator as an esteemed legal authority. The papers bulk with correspondence in the periods 1961-1969 and 1971-1978 when he served, respectively, as reporter to the Advisory Committee on Appellate Rules of the Judicial Conference of the United States and as reporter to the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules. The first series documents the formation and membership of the Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure and its advisory committees. The four following series, beginning with Advisory Committee on Appellate Rules, 1961-1969, are marshaled chronologically, to reflect Ward's successive service on the various committees. The subseries on rules (e.g., Rule 23 under the series, Advisory Committee on Civil Rules, 1971-1978) manifest the process by which those rules--from their conception through various drafts and proposed changes--arrived at their final form. The last two series relate to Ward's career as a law professor at Notre Dame, 1954-1958, and the University of Texas, 1966-1982, with correspondence that also documents his service on the federal rules committees and and his personal relationships with the federal judiciary and other legal scholars.
