Fowler Vincent Harper, 74 YALE L.J. 601 (1965)


Fowler Harper was a man of many interests, many talents, and many appeals.
But I speak here only of one aspect of them - his work in civil liberties.
It was here that I knew him best. Fowler and I lived through a quarter of
a century of civil liberties together. We were on the same letter-heads, we
signed the same petitions, we were attacked (libelled, Fowler would say) by
the same people. At times the going was rough. But Fowler never faltered,
never retreated, never thought of giving in. Quite the contrary, the more violent
the controversy the greater was his delight.
