Abstract:

The legendary Washington Bureau Chief and columnist of The New York Times, James Reston, with a push from Felix Frankfurter, decided that the paper of record would have its own correspondent specializing in the Supreme Court. 1 With his eye for excellent young talent, 2 Reston chose Anthony Lewis, already a Pulitzer-Prize winner before his thirtieth birthday, 3 and sent him to Harvard for the 1956–57 academic year as a Nieman Fellow to study law.
