Abstract:     
This text was the basis of remarks at the September 30, 2013, official ceremony naming the new Robert H. Jackson United States Courthouse in Buffalo.

The text describes Robert Jackson’s life path, including his two years (1917-1918) living and practicing law in Buffalo near what is today the Jackson Courthouse site in the heart of downtown Niagara Square; his late 1918 confidence that leaving Buffalo, one of the nation’s great cities, to live and practice law in much smaller Jamestown, New York, would work out for the best; his legacy today in special places and buildings, including courthouses throughout the U.S. and internationally, including in Nuremberg, Germany; and his high regard, expressed in 1937 to a friend who was a new Judge of the United States District Court for the Western District of New York, for the significant work of U.S. District Judges.

This file includes photographs of Jackson’s former office and apartment buildings in Buffalo, him with his son and WDNY Judge Harold P. Burke, and the new Jackson Courthouse.
