The files of Leonard and Carder consist of legal cases brought before the court by their firm over the period 1951 to 1983. The documents found within the collection substantiate the process of labor arbitrations through National Labor Relation Board hearings, state and federal court cases and within the ILWU itself.

Biographical Note

Norman Leonard was born in New York City on 27 February 1914. As a young man he moved with his family to Los Angeles, where he was graduated from UCLA in 1934.

Mr. Leonard practiced law continuously until 1986, with the exception of his US naval service during World War II.
