100 Years Ago Today


Today is June 1, 2016, which is the 100th anniversary of the Senate’s confirmation of President Wilson’s nomination of Louis D. Brandeis to the US Supreme Court. Newspapers across the country are marking the occasion with editorials. There are so many of them I cannot link to them all here, so I will limit myself to one. Laura Rothstein (who was kind enough to guest write one of the posts here) penned an op-ed piece on Brandeis’s nomination and the role Louisville and his family played on his judicial philosophy. It was published, appropriately enough, in the Courier-Journal, Brandeis’s hometown newspaper.
