Series V: Records of Cravath, Swaine and Moore and Other Legal Firms, 1901-1982
This series encompasses materials given to Columbia University by a variety of legal firms who had represented Armstrong and his wife, Marion, in litigation or estate matters. The bulk of the records came from Cravath, Swaine and Moore, Darby and Darby, Brumbaugh, Graves, Donohue and Raymond, and Pennie and Edmunds. These materials relate directly to the administration of the Edwin H. Armstrong estate, but many of Armstrong's original writings, disclosures, schematic drawings and notes can be found within this series, most prominently within the litigation files. Financial records for Armstrong's laboratories at Columbia University and at Alpine, New Jersey are included here as well.
