Abstract:
The Model Penal Code, first completed in 1962 and revised and expanded over the next 20 years, played an important role in the revision and codification of criminal law. The Chief Reporter on the project was Herbert Wechsler. A Criminal Law Advisory Committee was established to provide the reportorial staff with guidance in the drafting of the Code. A Proposed Official Draft was published in 1962. This version generated wide response among legislatures and courts, prompting a revision and expansion of the code's commentaries that began in 1976. A final version of the Model Penal Code, with revised commentaries, was published in 1985. The Code proved to be particularly influential in the areas of jurisdiction, double jeopardy, responsibility, criminal attempts, theft, abortion, obscenity, sentencing, and capital punishment. The collection, 1942-1985, includes correspondence, meeting materials, proceedings, drafts, reports, reference materials, published versions, citations, and related records regarding the drafting of the Model Penal Code, which consolidated and codified previous legislation and judicial opinions related to criminal law.

Biography/History

The Model Penal Code, first completed in 1962 and revised and expanded over the next 20 years, played an important role in the revision and codification of criminal law. Work on the project began in earnest in 1952, following initial funding by the Rockefeller Foundation. The Chief Reporter on the project was Herbert Wechsler. A Criminal Law Advisory Committee was established to provide the reportorial staff with guidance in the drafting of the Code. The committee collected academics, practitioners, judges, and other experts in criminal law.

The original Model Penal Code project generated 13 Tentative Drafts, published from 1953 to 1960. A proposed Final Draft followed in 1961, followed the by Proposed Official Draft in 1962. This 1962 version generated wide response among legislatures and courts, prompting a revision and expansion of the code's commentaries that began in 1976.

A final version of the Model Penal Code, with revised commentaries, was published in 1985. The Code proved to be particularly influential in the areas of jurisdiction, double jeopardy, responsibility, criminal attempts, theft, abortion, obscenity, sentencing, and capital punishment.

Scope and Contents

The Model Penal Code Records, 1942-1985, include correspondence, meeting records, proceedings, drafts, reports, reference materials, publications, citations, and related records regarding the drafting of the Model Penal Code, from the project's early days of fundraising to its final publication in 1985.
