92px-Senator_George_Sutherland_2I’m going to explain in some future posts why I’ve decided to research Justice George Sutherland for a biography, but let me start with this story.  Sutherland was by all accounts a charming man who loved conversation (not surprising given that he was a successful politician who reached the Senate), and when the Justices got together for their weekly conference, Justice Holmes would often bow when Sutherland entered the room and say “Sutherland, J.  Tell me a story.”  And he invariably did tell one that left everyone laughing.
