Paul Horwitz at Prawfsblawg points to an amazing live recording of the sometimes odious and usually brilliant Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. made at the conclusion of a symposium in honor of his 90th birthday.
Truly a dead voice from the past.
And as Faulkner said, “The past is never dead. It's not even past.”
[I'm in Italy until late Wednesday, so I queued up a few posts to cover while I'm away. This is one of them.]
I cannot find the most honorable Mr. Justice Holmes recording from Harvard radio broadcast on his 90th. The link just takes me to wyzant… I heard the recording once as an underclassmen at Cal State- before I ever attended law school. I would like to hear it again.
I can not find the audio for his 90th birthday anywhere. Id really like to hear it.
