The John Hanson Briscoe Historical Project

 

The John Hanson Briscoe Historical Project is an ongoing historical project relating the life and times of John Hanson Briscoe (1934-2014), St. Mary's County lawyer, judge, and former Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates.  Through 60-plus interviews conducted with his friends and contemporaries, and through hundreds of separate primary and secondary documents, the John Hanson Briscoe Historical Project gives readers, researchers, and history enthusiasts detailed and personal accounts of John Hanson Briscoe's life, as well as on topics such as law and politics in Maryland, the development of St. Mary's County and Lexington Park, and of life in Maryland and St. Mary's County in general during the twentieth century.

 

The project is regularly updated, and visitors will be able download the entire project, or its individual chapters, below.  Additional content will be added at their completion.
