I try to answer messages, but I often am unable (because of the volume of such requests)
to answer specific requests for information about famous trials. If I can supply a quick answer without researching, I will.
Sorry, I may not be able to return long-distance phone calls.
During the months of July and August, I am often out of my office for extended periods and unable to respond to e-mail.
I receive many requests for copyright permission for images. I do not have the time to reply to them.
Images from 1923 and earlier are in the public domain and anyone may republish them.
National History Day requests for interviews approach a hundred annually, and--as much as I'd like to--I cannot do that many interviews
and still do my own teaching and research. If students have a specific e-mail question about a trial that is not answered on my website, I will try to answer it, but I cannot answer a series of e-mailed questions, schedule phone interviews, or return long-distance phone calls. If students succeed in reaching me in my office by phone
(and I am not too busy), I will answer some questions. Again, I apologize in advance for not being able to be more helpful.
Thanks for your interest in the Famous Trials website.
