Yale Biographical Dictionary of American Law

Nicholas Johnson is among the roughly 700 individuals included in this “biographical dictionary of American law,” described by the publisher as “leading figures in the history of American law, from the colonial era to the present day.” The creator and editor of this volume (which represents the work of some 600 contributors), Roger Newman, describes those included as “the men and women who have devised, replenished, expounded, and explained American law    . . . the most significant in the history of American law [who] have had lasting impact and influence as judged by contemporaries or by history . . . these deserving dead and most eminent living . . ..” Roger K. Newman, ed., The Yale Biographical Dictionary of American Law (New Haven & London: Yale University Press, 2009). Johnson’s entry begins on p. 299. This reference work is available from the Yale University Press, local bookstores, online booksellers, and may be browsed (in part) on Google Books.
