Overview

Morris Fromkin was a lifelong friend and supporter of individuals and movements seeking social justice in this century. In 1920, he was admitted to practice law before the Supreme Court of the State of Wisconsin and opened his first law office in Milwaukee. A substantial proportion of his cases brought no fees because he represented immigrants, indigents, and members of movements for social justice. In 1946, Mr. Fromkin established a law office in New York City, where he continued and extended his interest in community affairs. After his death in 1969, his family established the Morris Fromkin Memorial at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The Quest for Social Justice II contains the research findings of ten scholars who won the coveted Fromkin Memorial Grant and Lectureship at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee during the period 1981 through 1990. The essays reveal a broad spectrum of scholarship and address a diversity of topics, yet all are bound by the unifying theme of social justice and human rights. The initial eleven Fromkin Memorial Lectures were published in 1983 under the title The Quest for Social Justice.
