“Notorious REC”? (Robert E. Cushman): The Famed Cornell Professor’s Connections to Robert H. Jackson & Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Upstate New York greats include U.S. Supreme Court justice and Nuremberg prosecutor Robert H. Jackson and, for four undergraduate years at Cornell, Ruth Bader of Brooklyn, who became Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a U.S. Supreme Court justice and “Notorious RBG.”
Influencing and connecting them was Robert E. Cushman, constitutional scholar and government professor at Cornell University. Cushman was a Jackson contact and friend. And Cushman was RBG’s most influential teacher—he introduced her to law and to civil liberties and urged her to become a lawyer.
Irin Carmon, journalist and co-author of Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
John Q. Barrett, Benjamin N. Cardozo Professor at St. John’s University and Elizabeth S. Lenna Fellow at the Robert H. Jackson Center
A book signing for both the adult and young adult versions of Carmon’s Notorious RBG and Jackson’s That Man (edited by Barrett) will follow. This event is free and open to the public.
