About this title


Published to honor the centennial of Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black's birth, this memior is both a revealing look at life in and around the Supreme Court and a moving love story of devoted spouses

From Library Journal:

Hugo Black was born in Alabama in 1886. His early career was spent in the state, culminating in his election to the Senate in 1927. He was appointed to the Supreme Court by Roosevelt in 1937, and he served until 1971. The first part of this book is Black's early memoirs of growing up in Alabama through the year 1922before, obviously, he was elected to the Senate or appointed to the Court. Elizabeth Black, his second wife, provides a brief sketch of his life before her diaries begin; her diary entries, more than half the book, run from 1964 until Black's death in 1971. While Black's memoirs are interesting, we must rely on Mrs. Black's diaries for the court years; unfortunately, they do not offer a great deal of information about Black as a justice.
