Book Review: Simeon Eben Baldwin – Lawyer, Social Scientist, Statesman, 65 Yale Law Journal 274 (1955)


It gives me special please to review the biography of Simeon E. Bladwin for the Yale Law Journal. This is chiefly because of the character of the man; but it is also because of our long personal association and because of the debt that this writer and the Yale Law School owe to him. In his foreword to the volume, Judge Clark quotes from a tribute to Baldwin published in the Journal at the time of his death, and correctly attributes that quotation to me. Since it is now nearly thirty years since those words were published, few of today's reader of the Journal have seen them.
