Subject: [IL-Old-News] court reporter
My great-grandfather Daniel Edward Devlin was a court reporter for the
Chicago Tribune in the late 19th century and early 20th. He and a business
associate Sam Roberts had their office at 111 W. Washington St. His son
later went into the business and married a woman named Evelyn who was also
court reporter. Daniel was said to have instrumental in unionizing
reporter profession. How could I research that claim?
How can I find out what cases they covered? (Other than scan the Tribune?)
live near Washington DC. Any help appreciated.
Maureen do you mean a court reporter used by the courts and attorneys, or
newspaper reporter whose beat is the courts? If the former is the case,
then I would call the Cook County Assumed Name Index and find out how far
back their archives go.
