Brandeis on Louisville Life


KET, Kentucky’s network of PBS television stations, produces a show called Louisville Life, which is a look at the people, places and history of Louisville. Next week’s episode will feature a segment on Brandeis and his connection to the city. Much of the segment was filmed in the room of the library here at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law where we keep his papers. Much of the segment will be an interview with former Dean Laura Rothstein, although if you pay close attention and are psychically inclined, you may be able to sense my presence about 10 feet behind the cameraman. The episode will premiere at 7:00 PM on Saturday May 25 on the “main” KET channel (channel 13, as it’s known to Louisvillians) and will be repeated at various times and on various channels throughout the following week. You can find a complete listing of show times on KET’s web page. It will also be posted online shortly after it’s premiere. I’ll provide a link for it when that happens.

On an unrelated note: It has just come to my attention that Mel Urofsky has published another article on Brandeis. It’s called “The Legacy of Louis D. Brandeis” and it is published in The Journal of Appellate Practice and Process, Fall 2012, v. 13, no.2, pp. 189-197. I have not yet found a copy of it online.

Update: The episode has been posted online. It is the first segment of the show. It features lots of interesting talking points from Laura Rothstein and some nice shots of our library. There are also interviews with Frank Gilbert (Brandeis’ grandson) and Congressman John Yarmuth, as well as three Zelig-like appearances of me in the background.
