Felix Frankfurter (1882-1965), who would serve as an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court from 1939-1962, was a member of the Harvard Law School faculty from 1914-1939. His liberal reputation was derived from his many involvements: Frankfurter helped found the American Civil Liberties Union in 1920, and he actively supported the Zionist movement and labor unions. Frankfurter also served as advisor to President Woodrow Wilson at the Paris Peace Conference (1919) and advised Franklin D. Roosevelt during both his governorship and presidency. FDR appointed Frankfurter to the Supreme Court in 1939. While on the Court, Frankfurter emphasized the Court's function to base all opinions on constitutional law rather than personal opinion.
