At Harvard, Linda was one of the earliest female editors of The Crimson and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. At their twenty-fifth reunion, her class elected her Chief Marshall of the 1993 Commencement. (She succeeded actor John Lithgow and preceded composer John Adams; this year's Chief Marshal is Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.) She is a 2006 awardee of the Radcliffe Institute Medal.
She has written the biographical Becoming Justice Blackmun: Harry Blackmun's Supreme Court Journey (2006), and The U.S. Supreme Court: A Very Short Introduction (2012); her newest book, The Burger Court and the Rise of the Judicial Right, with Michael Graetz, will appear in June.
