E. Barrett Prettyman, Jr. (b. 1925), was Katherine Anne Porter's lawyer and close friend from the mid-1960s until her death in 1980. He has been in private practice in Washington, D.C., since 1955, and a partner with the prominent firm of Hogan and Hartson since 1964. He is the author of Death and the Supreme Court. His papers include personal letters and business correspondence relating to Porter. During the lifetime of Mr. Prettyman, no one may quote from these papers unless authorized in writing by him. In addition, researchers may not consult the portion of these papers donated in 1997 without Mr. Prettyman's written permission.
