Holmes and Labor Law (with Samuel Mermin), 2 Current Legal Thought 974 (1936)

Abstract

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 Holmes' 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.
