Scope and Contents
This series holds a variety of other interesting items, including a map of Palestine and a genealogical chart for the Wehle [Brandeis's maternal] lineage.

Of note are a set of documents on the legal battles around film censorship in Chicago, a set of Zionist postcards, publications unrelated to Brandeis, and several calling cards from the Brandeis family and others.
