Fellowship Work Summary, 2019–20

Ian Burney completed two draft chapters for his book project A History of Innocence: Erle Stanley Gardner, the Court of Last Resort, and the Pursuit of Wrongful Conviction in Cold War America. He also took advantage of the Center’s library support service to enhance the project’s archival reach by exploring significant relevant secondary literature in fields that are outside of his scholarly expertise.
