Frank Brandeis Gilbert, the grandson of Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis, received an honorary degree at Brandeis University’s commencement on Sunday. University officials said it had extra significance because this year the university is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Louis Brandeis’s appointment to the Supreme Court, on which he served from 1916 until 1939. Brandeis University also conferred honorary degrees on Julieanna Richardson, founder of “The HistoryMakers,” MIT professor Mildred Dresselhaus, filmmaker Agnieszka Holland , and abstract artist Jack Whitten.
