Learned Hand

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Learned Hand's life and career during the postwar years. On January 27, 1947, Hand turned seventy-five. His good health and undiminished acuity gave him no reason to break his vigorous stride. Instead, he continued busy and absorbed as the presiding judge of the Second Circuit, and pursued his interest in the politics of the day.
