Antonin Gregory Scalia, 1936-2016

Hudson Institute

Antonin Scalia, the nation’s longest-serving current Supreme Court justice, and recognized—by admirers and critics alike—as the most brilliant, original, and influential American jurist and legal thinker of his generation, died of natural causes while on vacation in Texas on Saturday, February 13. Hudson Institute mourns his passing, honors his legacy, and extends its deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and colleagues on the Court.

Among Justice Scalia’s final public speaking appearances was his commencement address last June to the graduating class of Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in Bethesda, Maryland—a characteristically eloquent, witty, unorthodox, but perfectly pitched 19-minute tour de force, the videotape of which can be viewed at the top of this page.
