Seeking research assistant to help judge write memoir

I have been asked to post the following announcement:

A judge in the Washington, DC area is looking for someone to assist him in writing his memoirs. The work would include helping to organize the judge’s papers and helping to structure his narrative. The assistant would likely begin by interviewing the judge, recording the interviews, and conducting independent research as needed to provide context. The work would be done in the evening or on weekends at the judge’s home. 

Chief Justice

My understanding is that some time in the 19th century the Chief Justice's formal title changed from Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States to Chief Justice of the United States. Can anyone point me to any articles, books, etc discussing this matter?

Thank you,

Seth
