Celebrating the 90th Anniversary of the Federal Probation System: The Federal Probation System: The Second 25 Years

Volume 79 Number 1
June 2015

As part of our celebration of the 90th anniversary of federal probation this year (as well as the 40th anniversary of federal pretrial services and the 10th anniversary of federal probation and pretrial service's National Training Academy), we reprint an article that originally appeared in the June 1975 Special Golden Anniversary Issue of Federal Probation. The article describes the development of the federal probation system from 1950 to 1975.
