Oral history interview with John F. Kilkenny [Transcript]

Transcript. This oral history interview with John F. Kilkenny was conducted by Rick Harmon in Portland, Oregon, from June 12 to October 3, 1984. The original audio of the recording is incomplete due to irretrievable damage to Tape 14, Side 2. Tape 17 is a re-enactment of that audio. The re-enactment was created by Rick Harmon and Terence O'Donnell after the damage to the original tape was discovered. It was based upon a transcript created before the damage occurred, which no longer exists. The accuracy of the re-enactment cannot be verified. In this interview, Kilkenny discusses his family background and early life on a sheep farm in Heppner, Oregon, and his education at Columbia Preparatory, a boarding school in Portland. He also briefly discusses his memories of World War I. He then talks about attending Notre Dame University in Indiana, including playing football under Knute Rockne; his social life; and preparing for the Oregon Bar by taking prep courses at Northwestern College of Law. He discusses his early law career in Pendleton and notable cases he worked on, including bankruptcy and Prohibition cases; his political views and Republican affiliation; and the effects of the Depression. He talks about serving as city attorney for Pendleton from 1930 to 1952. He talks briefly about how World War II affected his law practice, in the number and type of cases the firm handled. Also discussed is his involvement with the Oregon State Bar. Kilkenny discusses his 1959 appointment to the U.S. District Court of Oregon. He briefly describes judges he worked with, including Hall Lusk and Gus Solomon. He discusses cases involving admiralty law, the first amendment, labor unions, and criminal law. He then discusses his 1969 appointment to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He discusses cases involving the draft, procedures of the court, and efforts to split the Ninth Circuit. He then discusses how his sentencing style has changed over time, new precedents set by recent courts, and his thoughts on the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal. He discusses his involvement in the preservation of the Pioneer Courthouse in Portland. He closes the interview by talking about his recent activities and family life.

Kilkenny, John F.

Die neüwen Inseln-- so hinder Hispanien gegen Orient bey dem land Indie ligen / [Sebastian Münster].

A hand-colored map of the New World. The map appeared first in the 1540 Geographia Universalis published by Henircus Petri, and then in later editions of the Cosmographia. The map is the earliest known separate map of the Americas, with the two continents as an integral landmass. An illustration of Magellan's ship Victoria is in the Pacific, and there is an illustration depicting cannibalism in what is today Brazil. The estuaries of both the Amazon and the Rio del Plata are displayed, but not labeled, in South America. North America reflects Verrazzano's misapprehension of a large inland sea bordered by a narrow isthmus, with the Pacific and Japan (Zipangri) just beyond. A corner of India superior is at the top left; the western edge of northern Africa and Spain are visible on the right edge. The map labels are written in German and Latin. Relief is shown pictorially.
