|THE LAW BOOKS|
"... Roscoe Pound, a native of Nebraska who was a great botanist before he became a great legal scholar. He had been professor and dean of the University of Nebraska Law School. From there he moved to Northwestern University Law School then to Chicago Law School, and finally he was brought on to the Harvard Law School. He was an American legal scholar who was widely read not only in German juristic literature, but Pound spelled it out, applied it and amplified it, that law isn't something that exists as a closed system within itself, but draws its juices from life. Life was being studied, sought to be understood by scholars in other fields, sociology, economics, anthropology, and Pound was a great fellow for associating with students in other fields instead of treating law as a closed system with premises of its own i relation to its own ends." [Felix Frankfurter Reminisces (New York: Reynal & Co., 1960) pp. 167-8.]
