Stone, Harlan Fiske

Stone, Harlan Fiske (b. Chesterfield, N.H., 11 October 1872; d. Washington, D.C., 22 April 1946) From 1899 to 1924, Stone divided his time between his Wall Street law practice and teaching law at Columbia University. He served as attorney general in 1924 and joined the Supreme Court in 1925. Because Stone voted to uphold New Deal programs and progressive state laws—despite his Republican background—Franklin D. Roosevelt nominated him as 11th chief justice in 1941 (confirmed 27 June). Major decisions by Stone included Graves v. New York ex rel. O’Keefe, United States v. Darby Lumber Company, United States v. Classic, and Hirabayashi v. United States. He was chief justice less than five years.
