25th Amendment Archive at Fordham

The 25th Amendment dealing with succession in the event of presidential incapacity has been increasingly in the news of late.  What you might not know is that no constitutional amendment is more closely associated with a living person than the 25th Amendment is with its primary author and advocate, Dean John Feerick of Fordham Law School. 

The staff of Fordham Law School's Maloney Library have put together the 25th Amendment Archive, an open-access collection of materials tracing the history of the 25th Amendment including personal correspondence and other documents that are available nowhere else.

The archive features a timeline of the passage of the amendment, law review articles, books, congressional and executive branch materials, correspondence, photos, videos, and commission reports.
