Short biography
"A witty, no-nonsense Massachusetts girl, Marion Frankfurter was the editor of many of her husband's nonjudicial writings. Never shy about deflating the sometimes pedantic and opinionated Justice when circumstances seemed to call for it, she once cracked that "there are only two things wrong with Felix's speeches: he digresses and he returns to the subject." Crippled with arthritis and in need of constant, expensive medical care since her mid-60s, she was nearly indigent soon after her husband's death in 1965, a fact that prompted Congress to make a modest raise in the pensions of Supreme Court widows from $5,000 to $10,000 a year."
