Cornell to preserve early accounts of U.S. trials.

Rendering of Lizzie Borden
Phrenological Journal,
Dec 1892. The phrenologists
judged that her face showed
"courage, selfishness, and
executive ability."
Cornell University Library has received a grant to preserve accounts of early American trials such as the Lizzie Borden case. Trials covered run from the 1600s to the turn of the century. (Hat tip to Fine Books & Collections)
