From time to time, when we get a collection of related books into the library we like to share a list on a particular topic, but lately we’ve had some books come in that are too good not to share, even if they don’t fit with a particular theme. These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.

Call Number: 347.73 B627n Title: Hugo Black Author: Roger K. Newman
Note: Since I don’t think anyone would understand why it was interesting based on the title, I’ve added a summary. Hugo Black’s odyssey was long, varied, unlikely, and remarkably successful. It began in 1886 in the Alabama hill country and ended in 1971, when Americans were demonstrating in the streets. As a United States senator from 1927 to 1937 and then for thirty-four years on the United States Supreme Court as its most passionate civil libertarian, Black fought for the rights and welfare of all people.
