Biografie (woord)

R. Kent Newmyer is currently Professor of Law and History at the University of Connecticut Law School and a Distinguished Alumni Professor, emeritus, at the University of Connecticut. He is the author of Justice Joseph Story: Statesman of the Old Republic (1985), which won the Littleton-Griswold Prize in American Law and Society, awarded by the American Historical Association, as well as the Silver Gavel Award, awarded by the American Bar Association for the Supreme Court. He also wrote John Marshall and the Heroic Age of the Supreme Court (2001), which received the Francis Landry Award from Louisiana State University Press, in addition to an award from the State Library of Virginia for the best non-fiction book of the year.


"This is more than a memorial to a distinguished scholar--it is a book that should be put before every beginning student of American constitutional and legal history, to learn how a master of the craft does it. It is not merely a commemorative monument to a great career, but a monument for use."
H-Law, R. B. Bernstein, New York Law School
