Ms. Baker, author of two previous books on the Supreme Court, discussed her latest work, The Justice from Beacon Hill: The Life and Times of Oliver Wendell Holmes. At the beginning of the interview, Ms. Baker explained why she wrote the book: “He was Mount Everest for a legal historian---he was there, he had to be done.” She examined not only his life as a Supreme Court Justice, but also his relationship with his father, his service in the Civil War, his Harvard days, and his private legal practice. She also examined his relationship with Theodore Roosevelt, who had appointed him to the court. close
