Born: September 19, 1907 in Suffolk, Virginia
Died: August 25, 1998 in Richmond, Virginia
Democrat Lewis F. Powell, Jr. (1907-1998) was appointed Associate Justice by President Nixon. Commissioned on December 9, 1971, he was sworn in on January 7, 1972 and served for 15 years, five months and 19 days before retiring on June 26, 1987. Serving under both Chief Justices Warren Burger and William H. Rehnquist (from 1986), Powell, who had been a moderate before joining the Court, often found himself as the swing vote in a number of important cases. His votes decided the Court's first confrontations with abortion and affirmative action issues. Before joining the Court, the highlight of Powell's legal career was becoming President of the American Bar Association in 1964.
