The Curator's Office serves the Supreme Court of the United States by promoting a greater public understanding and appreciation of the nation's highest court. To this end, we collect the institution's rich history, share it with a diverse audience through a variety of programs, and preserve it for future generations.
The Office of the Curator was created in 1973 by Chief Justice Warren Burger to preserve Court history. The office develops, administers and preserves the collections of the Court; creates historical exhibits; provides a photographer to record historic events; and assists Justices and Court personnel with historical and illustrative materials. The Court attracts one million visitors each year. Academic groups, members of the judiciary, lawyers, families and tourists from around the world come to the Court. The Curator's Office provides education and information on Court functions and history to these visitors through an information desk, tours and lectures.
