An annotated bio-bibliography of the works of seminal law librarian Frederick C. Hicks, which touches upon many aspects of the history of legal education, law (and general) library history, and Association history. The Leaven of Sympathy draws its title from Hicks’ beloved Men and Books Famous in the Law and provides the most thorough accounting of Hicks’ works to date. It contains a full timeline of the life of Frederick C. Hicks, a robust biographical preface, which includes an excerpt from a little-known essay Hicks composed in his retirement, and nearly 160 entries organized chronologically and annotated with biographical references, footnotes, and cross-references. There are also six appendixes which highlight the work, personality, and artistry of the librarian scholar, including never-before-published reminiscences from his colleagues, a list of photographs that Hicks sold to the Tichnor Brothers for use as postcards, and a complete accounting of the courses taught by Hicks while at Yale Law School. To aid user access, name and subject indexes are also included.
