Retired Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter this weekend asked Israeli Education Minister Abba Eban to arrange for the bequest of the Justice’s library to the Hebrew University.

Justice Frankfurter made the request when Mr. Eban called on him during the Education Minister’s visit to Washington. The Frankfurter law library is one of the largest private libraries on law and politics in the world.”
