U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia will speak at the first of three Winthrop Paul Rockefeller lectures at Fort Smith related to the development there of the U.S. Marshals Museum.

Tghe lecture will be at 1 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Fort Smith Convention Center and is free and open to the public.

Three annual lectures by leaders from the judicial, executive and legislative branches are planned on the history of U.S. marshals. Lisenne Rockefeller, widow of the lieutenant governor, made a grant to fund the lecture series.

Scalia will be introduced by Judge Henry E. Hudson, a former director of the Marshals Service who was named to the bench by President George H. W. Bush.

From a news release:

“My husband would have been pleased to know that Justice Scalia will launch the inaugural presentation of this national lecture series named in his honor,” said Mrs. Rockefeller. “I look forward to having Justice Scalia in Arkansas to highlight the interwoven history of the judiciary branch and the U.S. Marshals Service.”
