ROSCOE POUND
Handwritten note by the Dean of Harvard Law School
Autograph Note signed: "13 December, 1930/Dear Mr. Cole/It gives me great/pleasure to comply with your/request./Yours sincerely,/Roscoe Pound", 4¼x3 card. Legal scholar Roscoe Pound (1870-1964), who graduated with a Botany degree from the University of Nebraska, never attended law school. Nevertheless, he became Dean of the Nebraska law school in 1903, a law professor at Harvard in 1910, and Dean of Harvard Law School (1916-1936). During his strict tenure, Harvard Law School registrations doubled, but one-third of the students there failed to graduate. Pound was one of the most often cited legal scholars of the 20th century. Initially, Pound espoused "legal realism," believing that judges should make decisions with the public interest in mind. He was highly critical of the "legal formalism" of the US Supreme Court's majority during the early New Deal. In 1937, however, Pound broke with President Roosevelt and condemned the "legal realism" he had previously espoused. Pound remained on the Harvard Law School faculty after resigning from the deanship. Mounting residue affixed on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
