Sen. William Borah, Idaho’s longest-serving member of Congress, died in 1940, but his name lives on at Borah High School and in the imagination of countless Idahoans.
The legal and public service career of “The Lion of Idaho” will be paid tribute on March 5, with remarks from Lt. Gov. Brad Little, former Idaho attorney general and Lt. Gov. Dave Leroy, and Marc Johnson, an amateur historian of the Progressive Era and partner at Gallatin Public Affairs.
Hosted by the University of Idaho College of Law, the open house for the Idaho legal history exhibit is set for 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The exhibit will be at the U of I’s Boise complex and the Idaho State Law Library on the 5th floor of the Idaho Water Center, at 322 E. Front Street, Boise.
Little, Leroy and Johnson will begin speaking at 5 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
