John Marshall and the Constitution: A Chronicle of the Supreme Court

By Edward S. Corwin | Go to book overview

BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

ALL accounts of Marshall's career previous to his appointment as Chief Justice have been superseded by Albert J. Beveridge two admirable volumes, The Life of John Marshall ( Boston, 1916). The author paints on a large canvas and with notable skill. His work is history as well as biography. His ample plan enables him to quote liberally from Marshall's writings and from all the really valuable first-hand sources. Both text and notes are valuable repositories of material, Beveridge has substantially completed a third volume covering the first decade of Marshall's chief-justiceship, and the entire work will probably run to five volumes.

Briefer accounts of Marshall covering his entire career will be found in Henry Flanders Lives and Times of the Chief Justices of the Supreme Court ( 1875) and Van Santvoord's Sketches of the Lives, Times, and Judicial Services of the Chief Justices of the Supreme Court ( 1882). Two excellent brief sketches are J. B. Thayer John Marshall ( 1901) in the Riverside Biographical Series, and W. D. Lewis's essay in the second volume of The Great American Lawyers, 8 vols. ( Philadelphia, 1907), of which he is also the editor. The latter is particularly happy in its blend of the personal and legal, the biographical and critical. A. B. Magruder John Marshall ( 1898) in the American Statesman Series falls
