Scope and Content Note

The Francis J. Duggan Papers span the years 1984-2010, with the bulk of materials dating from the mid-1990s. The collection contains series for: Articles, Multimedia, Correspondence, Memorabilia, Photographs/Negatives, and Subject Files.

The Articles series is ordered chronologically and contains clippings from 1984-2010. There are three subseries to this series: General, Book Reviews, and Journal, with the bulk of the series being made up of general articles. These provide an excellent timeline for the crash and the subsequent legal proceedings.

The Multimedia series contains only one item, a miniature recording cassette that is neither labeled nor dated and it is unclear what the content of the cassette might be.

Correspondence is a large part of the Duggan Collection. It is ordered by correspondent and arranged alphabetically. Notable correspondents include: George H.W. Bush, William W. Clinton, and Abd-El Basset Al Megrahi and Lamina Fheima.

Memorabilia in the Duggan Collection consists of 3 buttons, created and distributed by the Victims of Pan Am 103, Inc.

Photographs/Negatives are included in the collection and range in date from 1989-2001. Frank Duggan is pictured along with other members of the 1989 Presidents Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism and members of the Plaintiff's Committee for the families of the vicitms may be seen.

Subject Files are broken into five subseries: General, Court Cases, Law Firms, Legislation, and People. The Court Cases subseries provides documents outlining the case for government involvement in the trials of Megrahi and Fhimah and other relavant legal materials. The Law Firms subseries is heavily devoted to Kreindler & Kreindler and Sonneschein, Nath & Rosenthal, two firms that represented many of the families. Legislation directly relating to airline security, terrorism, compensation for victims families, and other relevant topics are presented. People represented include some of the SU victims. General subject files are also included.
