The Herzl Institute tonight launched a research project that will seek to locate all source material on the late Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis as a Jew and a Zionist. The announcement was made by Dr. Emanuel Neumann, president of the Theodor Herzl Foundation and a member of the Jewish Agency executive, at an open meeting of the Herzl Institute to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the death of Justice Brandeis.

Dr. Neumann said the project will be inaugurated with a Brandeis Biographical Conference sponsored by the Herzl Institute during the weekend of March 18-19, 1967, at which 16 papers on various aspects of Justice Brandeis’ life will be presented by eminent scholars and historians.
