FSC Historical SocietyIt’s been an active year for the Florida Supreme Court Historical Society with the first in-person annual dinner since 2020, renaming of its highest award, receipt of a statewide historical magazine award, and a major restoration project among its educational and celebratory activities.

  • Publishing the Historical Review magazine with event coverage and historical articles, including the 2022 Florida Historical Society Golden Quill Award winning article “Mystery Solved: Justice George W. Macrae” and three books chronicling our court’s history from 1921-1987.
  • Honoring the legacies of the Court and Past Justices through such projects as restoration of early color en banc photographs and commissioning official portraits.

The historical society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining records of people and events that shaped the evolution of Florida’s court system since the early 1800s and to educating Floridians about the vital role of the Judicial Branch in our system of government.

At the helm of the 45-year-old organization are more than six dozen Florida Bar members from throughout the state, including newly-elected officers and trustees. (See story, here.)

Support of the historical society and its work by Florida Bar members is always needed and appreciated. Membership levels include individual, judicial, young lawyer, and student, and special recognition levels for sustaining members, contributors, patrons, and life members. Dues and contributions are tax-deductible for charitable purposes to the extent allowed by law.
