Mr. Newmyer talked about his book, John Marshall and the Heroic Age of the Supreme Court, published by Louisiana State University Press. 

John Marshall (1755-1835) was possibly the most important judicial figure in American history. As the fourth chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, serving from 1801 to1835, he helped move the Court from the fringes of power to the epicenter of constitutional government. His great opinions in cases like Marbury v. Madison and McCulloch v. Maryland are still part of the working discourse of constitutional law in America. Mr. Newmyer used a new edition of Marshall’s papers in his research. close
