The newly opened papers of Henry Friendly contain more than one hundred pages of correspondence with Richard Posner 1982-86, the last four years of Friendly's life. Friendly was unquestionably the greatest appellate judge of his generation, and Posner would become the greatest of his. In this great generational intersection, we see these great judges discussing the law, personalities, their craft, and the major jurisprudential issues of their day. Through their correspondence we get an unique view into their greatness.
