Eminent Legal historian, Laura Laura Kalman challenges conventional wisdom surrounding the 1937 Court Packing Controversy by telling the story as it unfolded without the distortions of hindsight.  Kalman argues that the bill was not the he brainchild of a hubristic president but that the bill came very close to adding justices and this changed the court's course in and of itself.
