Bob Bork was a distinguished legal scholar, judge, teacher, and dear friend to his associates here at AEI. He was also a Marine who fought in Korea. He lost his first wife and mother of his three children, Claire, and his closest friend and Yale Law School colleague, Alexander Bickel, to cancer. He himself, when nominated to the Supreme Court was the victim of vicious lies and other calumnies. But, he was blessed by his second wife, Mary Ellen, who, during these past thirty years of sickness and health, cared for him so lovingly.
