Louis D. Brandeis — An Inspiring Life

January 29th, 2016 · No Comments


In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Louis D. Brandeis’s appointment to the U.S. Supreme court on January 28, 1916, the University Archives and Special Collections department has curated an engaging exhibit in the Goldfarb Library. We encourage anyone with a connection to, or interest in, Louis D. Brandeis to visit. Our experienced and knowledgeable librarians and archivists can give you a guided tour, where they will discuss the exhibit and how each piece was hand selected for this display of an extraordinary life.

If, however, you’re unable to visit campus — or prefer a self-guided tour — we’ve got you covered. We hope you’ll visit the Louis D. Brandeis online multimedia exhibition, which was researched and created by Zoe Waldman ’16,.
