The Early Years
HICKE: Let's start this afternoon, Professor Newman, with a little bit of your
background and how you got into law.
NEWMAN: I'm a native Californian, born in Eureka. My mother was a native
Californian, also born in Eureka, which is quite unusual.
HICKE: That is. That's really interesting. You're at least a second generation.
There aren't too many of those around. When were you born?
NEWMAN: Nineteen-seventeen.
