I am delighted to have attended this illuminating symposium about Linda Greenhouse's wonderful book, Becoming Justice Blackmun. The symposium covered two distinct subjects. The first is the story of Justice Blackmun, the Justice he became, and how we came to understand him. The second is the story of how the public learns about our Constitution and the Supreme Court Justices who interpret it. This Article focuses on the relationship between those subjects: how the process of unveiling Justice Blackmun and his work can help us as Americans to understand better our own Supreme Court.
