Bill's Will

May 1980
National Review;5/2/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 9, p516
The article focuses on the last will and testament of libertarian William O. Douglas. He has bequeathed land in Nova Scotia for the use of scholars around the world, including from Iran, Vietnam, China, Russia, and Mongolia. Douglas has left an indiscreet posthumous self-revelation. He also kept to the end the classic progressive faith in the Communist world as the Land of the Future.
