George Sutherland

Several years ago, I started researching a book project on Justice George Sutherland, one of the "Four Horsemen" during the New Deal. I thought about doing a book on him or a collective biography of the "Four Horsemen." For a variety of reasons, I decided that I did not want to write that book.

I still have the material that I accumulated on the Justice. Speeches he gave as a Senator, his Supreme Court opinions, and some items from his papers. If anyone is interested in writing about him or in anything related to him, then you should let me know. I may be able to help you by sharing what I have.

His support of the 19A and the gender equality aspects of his Adkins v. Children's Hospital opinion is interesting.

No interest in Sutherland, thanks.

But do you have any information about Justice George Thorogood, pioneer of the jurisprudential boogie-blues? I am writing a book about him.
