Study of Brandeis
A study of Louis Brandeis, one
of the most important figures in
the history of American reform,
"A Mind of One Piece" by Melvin
Urofsky, editor of the Brandeis
letters, will be published by
Charles Scribner's Sons on Aug.
Urofsky's theme "is to show how
seamless life and thought were in
this man, how closely action and
philosophy could be related in a
single personality." He explores
the different facets of Brandeis'
career, as reformer, Zionist, ad-
visor to Woodrow Wilson and Su-
preme Court justice, and shows
how they were tied together by
principles that Brandeis subscribed
to both in his private and public
life—individual freedom, a hatred
of bigness and a faith in the effi-
cacy of compromise, facts and
