The items in this collection come from a scrapbook personally compiled by Mary C. Martin, a graduate of the Lincoln College of Law in Springfield, former Assistant State's Attorney of Sangamon County, and member of the Illinois Supreme Court, U.S. District Court and U.S. Supreme Court bar. Martin enlisted in the Women's Auxiliary Corps during WWII and ultimately she became one of the prosecutors in the Criminal War Crimes Trials in Tokyo, Japan. Most of the items in this scrapbook come from her time in Japan in 1947-48.
