One cannot study the history of antitrust law without running headlong into the opinions of Associate Justice William 0. Douglas. In his thirty-six years on the Supreme Court, he authored thirty-five majority opinions and nearly as many dissenting or concurring opinions in cases involving antitrust questions or issues. It is quite probable that Justice Douglas authored more antitrust opinions, both for the majority and in dissent, than any Supreme Court justice in history. This Article will attempt to further define and refine Justice Douglas' antitrust philosophy by examining his written opinions and writings. It will then attempt to measure that philosophy's effect on the Supreme Court during his tenure and its contemporary impact in the context of the rapidly shifting antitrust doctrine of the last thirty years or so.
