General note

Series Note

This Series relates to AES's work on the Model Code of Pre-arraignment Procedure. It deals primarily with the period 1959-1965 although there is some material dated prior to 1959. The Series is divided into three parts. The first is correspondence both related and unrelated to the Pre-arraignment Project. The second is a research file and the last contains drafts of reports and other materials dealing directly with the Pre-arraignment Project. Also working with AES on the Project were Miss Susan Shapiro, Mr. James Vorenberg, Mr. Edward Barrett and Mr. Robert Williams.

AES was the original Reporter-in-Chief; he resigned but remained a consultant throughout. His successors as Reporters were James Vorenberg and Paul Bator.
