Author, Historian and Chief of Cultural Resources at
Morristown National Historic Park
Join us for a lively discussion with Jude M. Pfister— Author, Historian and Chief of Cultural Resources at Morristown National Historic Park. Jude will discuss his upcoming book The First Decade of the United States Supreme Court, which is due to be published in August 2018.
Constitutional development in the U.S. Supreme Court is commonly held to have begun with Chief Justice John Marshall. Pfister’s book, through analysis and elaboration of several seminal cases brought before the Court under Chief Justices Jay and Ellsworth, shows that in fact constitutional jurisprudence began in the U.S. in the decade before John Marshall arrived.
