Charles Evans Hughes
By Merlo J. Pusey
Macmillan, 1951, 2 pp

An authoritative, carefully documented biography of a dominating figure in American public life, by a Washington editor who had the coöperation and confidence of the late Chief Justice in his years of retirement. The author's evidence of Mr. Hughes' personal warmth clearly belies the legend of the "human icicle," but he provides a critical analysis of actions and court opinions which nourished this legend throughout a long and distinguished career.
