Learned Hand

Gerald Gunther

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Learned Hand's changing views on the totalitarian, expansionist regimes in Europe, American policy, and the end of his friendship with Walter Lippmann. Hand increasingly admired Roosevelt's leadership, especially because he seemed to be doing his best, within the limits of the dominant isolationism, to lead the nation toward anti-totalitarianism. Despite signs that American policy was moving steadily toward open support of the Allies, Hand grew increasingly impatient with the snail-like pace. In the early fall of 1937, the friendship between Lippmann and Hand suddenly ended due to their conflicting views toward European developments in the mid-1930s.

Keywords:   Europe, judges, Europe, World War II, Walter Lippmann, American isolationalism
