KIRKUS REVIEW

A monograph, concerning the eight years Taft spent as a Professor at Yale, between the Presidency and his appointment as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Based on lectures, letters, the recollections of students who sat under him, this is supplementary documentation for students, future biographers, etc. It tells of his triu reception, his informal, friendly relations with faculty and students, the courses he gave first at Yale, then at the Yale Law School, his local interests and activities, his addresses elsewhere, and a closing chapter of personal anecdote. Additional source and reference material for a specialized market.
