Ralph Lancaster Named Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Supreme Court Historical Society

Pierce Atwood is pleased to announce that Ralph I. Lancaster, Jr., of counsel at the firm, was named Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Supreme Court Historical Society at its annual meeting last week. 

Ralph is a member of the firm’s Litigation Group where he tries both civil and criminal cases locally, nationally and internationally. His case experience runs the gamut from Plaintiffs' personal injury to complex commercial matters on the civil side to murder, white collar crime and tax evasion on the criminal side.  He has been appointed a Special Master by the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States on three different occasions.

The Society, a private non-profit organization, is dedicated to the collection and preservation of the history of the Supreme Court of the United States. Incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1974, it was founded by Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, who served as its first honorary chairman. The Society accomplishes its mission by conducting educational programs, programs of interest to legal practitioners, scholars and historians and the general public, supporting historical research, publishing books, journals, and electronic materials, and by collecting antiques and artifacts related to the court's history. At present, the Society has about 5,100 individual members who provide financial support and volunteer for service on its standing and ad hoc committees.
