Abstract

Philip Elman was law clerk to Justice Felix Frankfurter in the 1941 and 1942 Terms, and he remained, in the Justice's words, his "law clerk for life." What follows is an edited excerpt from a much larger interview with Mr. Elman, conducted for the Columbia Oral History Project by Norman Silber, about Mr. Elman's career of public service, his relationship with Justice Frankfurter, and his view of American legal culture and institutions since the 1930s. In June 1945, when Charles Fahy became Legal Adviser to General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the United States Military Governor in Germany, Mr. Elman went along as his assistant. This part of the memoir takes up upon his return to the Solicitor General's office in the fall of 1946.
