The inscription reads "For Berdie Hellinger,/ With happy memories and/ the best wishes. Affectionately, Felix Frankfurter/ July 29, 1960." This incisive and fascinating memoir was transcribed from a series of interviews with Phillips conducted for the Columbia University Oral History Research Department. The only commercially published oral history conducted with a Supreme Court justice, it traces his life, career and his thoughts on such topics as religion and the function of judges. Berdie Hellinger was probably the wife of Samuel Hellinger, a notable New York City lawyer who studied with Frankfurter at Harvard Law School.
