During the 1910s, an ordinary Dupont Circle row house was one of the city’s leading political salons and a meeting place for young progressives, including Felix Frankfurter, Walter Lippmann, and Louis Brandeis. Join us for a discussion about how Frankfurter, Lippmann, and other House of Truth regulars joined forces to fight for Brandeis’s Supreme Court confirmation in 1916. The discussion will feature Brad Snyder, Constitutional Law Professor at Georgetown University, and Jennifer M. Lowe, Director of Programs and Strategic Planning, Supreme Court Historical Society.

Presented in partnership with the Capital Jewish Museum and the Supreme Court Historical Society.
