Four men who clerked 50 years ago for four Supreme Court Justices reminisced about the Brown v. Board of Education cases, decided during their clerkships at the Court. In part one of a two-part program, they set the scene for the Brown cases at the Supreme Court and give background on the justices who decided them, especially new Chief Justice Earl Warren, who arrived at the start of the 1953 term. The four are: Earl Pollock, who clerked for both Chief Justice Fred Vinson, who died suddenly in 1953, and new Chief Justice Earl Warren, who took Vinson’s place; Frank Sander, who clerked for Justice Felix Frankfurter; E. Barrett Prettyman, Jr., who clerked for Justice Robert Jackson; and Jack Fassett, who clerked for Justice Stanley Reed. The four haven’t been together since their clerkship. close
