Proceedings of the Bar and Officers of the Supreme Court of the United States

2009, Biography/Writings on Legal Minds, Constitutional Law admin

In Memory of John Marshall Harlan, December 16, 1911

John Marshall Harlan was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1877 by President Rutherford B. Hayes, whom he had helped win the 1876 Republican Party presidential nomination. Harlan was most notable as the first Supreme Court justice to have earned a modern law degree, and more importantly as the lone dissenter in the infamous 1896 case of Plessey v. Ferguson, which upheld southern segregation statutes. This work is a resourceful account of proceedings, motions made, and memorial speeches given in the United States Supreme Court to commemorate the passing of Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Marshall Harlan, whose 33-year tenure with the Court was one of the longest in history.
