Supreme Court Justice Brandeis made his famous statement that "sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants" in a 1913 Harper's Weekly article, entitled "What Publicity Can Do."

Justice Brandeis (from Louisville) also wrote: "If the broad light of day could be let in upon men’s actions, it would purify them as the sun disinfects"
