From the Diaries of Felix Frankfurter
Edited by Joseph P. Lash
Norton, 1975, 366 pp

This volume opens with a 98-page biographical essay, mingling admiration and criticism. The diary selections cover the years 1943-47, with a few fragments from earlier years, and are valuable both for an understanding of Frankfurter's strong opinions and as a source for who said what about whom in wartime and early postwar Washington.
