The Iconoclast as Reformer: Jerome Frank’s Impact on American Law (Book Review), 32 Wayne Law Review 1555 (1986)
Date of Authorship for this Version
Legal reputations fade fast. Is Jerome N. Frank's name known to anyone under the age of fifty, except for Yale Law students serving in the Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization? For newcomers and oldtimers alike, Robert Jerome Glennon's biography The Iconoclast as Reformer is a splendid assessment of a man who brought "tremendous energy, enthusiasm, and creativity to his work as a corporate lawyer, New Dealer, federal appeals judge, and legal philosopher" and whose wife said that marriage to him "is like being tied to the tail of a comet."
