WARREN E. BURGER (1907-1995), a Republican appointed by President Richard Nixon to replace
Chief Justice Earl Warren, served as Chief
Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1969
until his retirement in 1986. His court upheld
Miranda v. Arizona (source of the "Miranda
warning"), decided 1973's abortion rights case
Roe v. Wade. It also ruled unanimously rejected President Nixon's claim of
executive privilege, compelling him to turn the infamous "White House" tapes over to
the Special Prosecutor investigating Watergate. WILLIAM REHNQUIST (1924-2005) was
appointed Associate Justice by President Nixon on January 7, 1972. President Reagan
appointed Rehnquist Chief Justice on September 26, 1986; he served until his death in
2005. As Chief Justice, he presided at
President Clinton's impeachment trial in 1999. On December 12, 2000, his court ruled 5-4 that the manual recount of presidential
votes in Florida was unconstitutional, resulting in Vice President Al Gore's
concession and Texas Governor George W. Bush's victory. WILLIAM J. BRENNAN
, Jr. (1906-
1997), appointed Associate Justice by President Eisenhower, served from 1956-1990.
He believed that only by making the Constitution a
"living document" could our system of government keep up with the needs of our society
in direct opposition to the "strict constructionist" approach of conservative
colleagues such as Justice Rehnquist. BYRON R.
WHITE (1917-2002), was the first appointment to the Supreme Court by President Kennedy and
served from 1962 until his retirement in 1993.
White played professional football for the then Pittsburgh Pirates (now the Steelers)
to earn money for law school, and was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford until World War II
broke out. At the time of his appointment, he was the youngest member (at age 44) to
serve on the Court. Difficult to categorize and
suspicious of ideology, White dissented in such landmark cases as Miranda and
Roe v. Wade (1973). THURGOOD MARSHALL
(1908-1993) was the
first black Associate Justice to sit on
the U.S. Supreme Court (1967-1991). As Associate Justice, Marshall supported First
Amendment rights, opposed the death penalty and argued against any form of
discrimination. Previously, as legal director
for the NAACP, he had successfully argued the landmark Civil Rights case,
Brown v. Board of Education (1954), before the Supreme Court. HARRY A. BLACKMUN (1908-1999) appointed by President Nixon in 1970, was
initially allied with the conservatives on the Court, but is best remembered for his 1973 majority opinion in Roe v. Wade
, legalizing abortion. He retired in 1994.
LEWIS F. POWELL, JR. (1907-1998), a Democrat, was appointed Associate Justice by President
Nixon. Commissioned on Dec. 9, 1971, he served from 1972 to 1987. Serving under both
Chief Justices Warren Burger and William H. Rehnquist (from 1986), Powell, who had been
a moderate before joining the Court, often found himself as the swing vote in a number
of important cases. His votes decided the
Court's first confrontations with abortion and affirmative action issues.
Before joining the Court, the highlight of Powell's legal
career was becoming President of the American
Bar Association in 1964. JOHN PAUL STEVENS (b.
1920) was sworn in as an Associate Justice of
the U.S. Supreme Court on December 19, 1975.
He established a moderately liberal voting record that made him seem even more liberal
against more recent conservative appointees and has been a strong defender of civil
rights, gay rights and First Amendment rights.
SANDRA DAY O'CONNOR (b. 1930), graduated
third in the same Stanford Law School class from which former Chief Justice Rehnquist
graduated first. A former Majority Leader of the Arizona Senate, she became a state
trial court judge and then in 1979 a judge on the Court of Appeals. President Reagan nominated her for the US Supreme Court, and she
was easily confirmed in September 1981, becoming the first woman on the highest court.
O'Connor was often a swing vote on divided Court decisions, and she took the lead in
defining the nature and limits of abortion rights within the context of
Roe v Wade. O'Connor retired from the Court in January 2006. Photo in fine condition. Cardstock corners lightly creased and worn.
Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition. Previously authenticated by PSA/DNA.
