Cushman's "Clerks of the Four Horsemen," Part II

Speaking of judicial clerks, Barry Cushman, Notre Dame Law School, has posted the second and concluding installment of The Clerks of the Four Horsemen, which appears in the Journal of Supreme Court History.  This installment is 40 (2015): 55-79.  According to Professor Cushman, it “follows the interesting and often surprising lives and careers of the men who clerked for Justices George Sutherland and Pierce Butler. These biographical sketches confound easy stereotypes, and prove the adage that law, like politics, can make for strange bedfellows.”  The first installment is here.  And see also Clare Cushman's Lost Clerks of the White Court.
