Learned Hand

Gerald Gunther

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Learned Hand's life after retirement. Hand's retirement from “regular active service” in 1951 by no means ended his public life. Not only did he continue to participate in many cases on the Second Circuit; he became ever better known to an ever larger audience. The greatest single factor that propelled Hand to the rank of American folk hero was the publication in 1952 of The Spirit of Liberty, a collection of his extrajudicial papers and addresses.
