Louisville in Jefferson County, Kentucky — The American South (East South Central)
Louis D. Brandeis (1856-1941)
Brandeis is also remembered for his early commitment to donated legal services, an area in which this school has been a leader. Brandeis was an opponent of the growing “bigness” of American institutions. He also wrote that “the right to be let alone” is fundamental. Remains of his wife, Alice Goldmark Brandeis, were placed here in 1945.
