"I agree with you altogether that the quality of our judges is fundamental to the quality of our judicial output and I also agree that the method & selection, the tenure & termination of office are most important. Of course I am all against short election terms and recall of judges. My own inclination is strongly, on the whole, for an appointive judiciary particularly with, possibly, an elected C.J. as the administrative head of the whole judicial system..." Frankfurter was a professor at Harvard Law School from 1914 to 1939. Note: Item unexamined out of the frame.
