Holmes and Labor Law (with Samuel Mermin), 13 New York University Law Quarterly Review 517 (1936)


AT THIS moment when the labor law of tomorrow is in suspense,
it'would be well if we saw clearly the confused labor law
of the generation that is ending. One great mind both watched
and worked at that law the whole while that it was happening.
We believe no clearer picture of it can be had than one in which
Hohnies' views of what it should be, and legal consonances with
them, are central, and inconsistent views and legal ways are shown
with reference to them.' What is here attempted is a sketch for
such a picture, without pretension to completeness. Believing that
there is light in their assemblage, we shall not scruple to re-quote
familiar sayings and re-state familiar cases.
