The 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 two of a two-part program, the former clerks talk about the Brown oral argument, how draft opinions in the case were circulated, and their recollections of May 17, 1954, the day the unanimous Brown decision was handed down. 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
