The Donald E. Pray Law Library at the University of Oklahoma College of Law is excited to announce a new collection, the Strickland Collection of Law and Popular Culture. The collection was established through a generous donation of law-related movie posters, lobby cards, and related materials by Professor Rennard Strickland. Strickland is Senior Scholar in Residence at the University of Oklahoma College of Law. Strickland has an amazing personal history of achievement as a law professor, law school dean, prolific author, art collector, legal historian, and authority on Native American Law.
Lobby cards are small movie posters, usually 8 x 10 inches. The cards and posters depict scenes from movies dating from the 1920's to the 1980's and reflect the portrayal of lawyers and law-related themes in popular culture. They were created and distributed by the National Screen Service (which ceased in 1985) in order to promote public showings of movies. There are over 200 posters and over 1,000 lobby cards in the Strickland Collection. They offer students and scholars an opportunity to view legal history in an enjoyable format while prompting and encouraging reflection on more serious issues. They are in themselves works of art.
