William O. Douglas

Born October 16, 1898,  William O. Douglas served on the United States Supreme Court from 1939 until 1975 as its longest - and arguably its most controversial - - - Justice.


A fairly balanced view of the Justice can be found in Bruce Allen Murphy's WILD BILL: The Legend and Life of William O. Douglas.

Douglas' own autobiographies, especially GO EAST YOUNG MAN, are also worth reading.
