Edwin Borchard was my colleague and intimate friend for many years. When I came to the Yale faculty in 1919 he was one of the younger members, although a mature and recognized scholar in spite of his youthful appearance. We were thus thrown together and found much in common. For many years we were tennis opponents; on one famous New Haven day we were on our way for some sets at the Lawn Club only to discover the Club on fire and a complete loss, even down to our own tennis equipment.
and our families were also intimate. Thus we saw at first hand his beautiful home life with his lovely wife and his two daughters, whom he, quite understandingly, adored.
