A Conversation with Hendrik Hartog

HENDRIK HARTOG
[December 2008]
In January 1994, the Law and History Review published an interview of
Willard Hurst by Hendrik Hartog.' Michael Grossberg, as editor, introduced
the interview as the first of an occasional series of discussions with legal
historians. Over a decade has elapsed since that conversation. Willard
Hurst was known both for his scholarship and his commitment to mentor-
ing. Planning for the 4th Biennial Hurst Summer Institute at Madison in
June 2007, I could think of no better way to conclude an Institute focused
on nurturing legal historians at the beginning of their careers than with a
conversation focused on a life in legal history.
We began the 2007 Hurst Summer Institute by reading Hendrik (Dirk)
Hartog's classic article Pigs and Positivism.2 Following that were won-
1. Hendrik Hartog, Snakes in Ireland: A Conversation with Willard Hurst, Law and
History Review 12 (1994): 370-90.
2. Hendrik Hartog, Pigs and Positivism, Wisconsin Law Review (1985): 899-935.
Barbara Young Welke is Associate Professor of History and Professor of Law at the
University of Minnesota <welke004@umn.edu>. She wishes to thank Dirk Hartog
for graciously agreeing to the interview; Howard Erlanger, Pam Hollenhorst, and
the Institute for Legal Studies, University of Wisconsin Law School for hosting
the Hurst Biennial Summer Institute in Legal History and for technical support
in making this interview possible; the 2007 Hurst Fellows for their enthusiastic
support and participation; and David Tanenhaus and the anonymous reviewers for
Law and History Review.
Hendrik Hartog is Class of 1921 Bicentennial Professor in the History of Ameri-
can Law and Liberty and director of the Program in American Studies at Princeton
