Abstract

The 1959 Holmes lecture, Toward Neutral Principles of Constitutional Law, has become a "state paper" of consequence. Two converging factors have made for this result. One of these is that Herbert Wechsler, the author of the paper, is a lawyer and scholar of great distinction. The second is that the paper condemned the Supreme Court's decision in the School Segregation Cases (and that Court's decisions in the Restrictive Covenants and White Primary cases as well).
