Check out Louisville’s best native son at the Filson

Hey, Louisville history nerds — Happy New Year!

Start the year off right by going to the Filson Historical Society to see Peter Scott Campbell, author of The Quotable Brandeis (Legal History).


Louis Brandeis

Louis Brandeis was a pretty badass Supreme. He was a lawyer from Louisville, who was the first Jew on the U.S. Supreme Court (nominated by Pres. Woodrow Wilson). He’s been called “The People’s Lawyer” and even a “Robin Hood of the law.”

He’s often quoted, but those quotes are not always correct. Campbell will discuss the correct and incorrect quotes attributed to Brandeis.

Campbell is a librarian and archivist at the University of Louisville and runs a blog, Brandeis and Harlan Watch.

Check out his blog and buy his book. I’m going to buy it, myself. And I might go to the lecture, if I can.

The event is free to Filson members and $10 for non-members. Get tickets.
