Interview with Judge John Minor Wisdom
QUESTION 16
INTERVIEWER:

DO YOU THINK THIS DOCTRINE THOUGH WAS EVER AN ACTUAL THREAT TO OUR SYSTEM AS..

Judge John Minor Wisdom:

No, I think the doctrine was never an actual threat to the system, although there had been some suggestion of it by one of the New England states in regard to, I've forgotten the occasion now, but it was, it had been brooded about for some time. But no one has paid, no serious student of the law ever paid any attention to it, And I don't think John C. Calhoun did either that's really, I shouldn't bring in John C. Calhoun because he had a far more complicated theory of the relationship of the states and the national government.
