Biography | show moreshow less
Warren (1891-1974) served as Attorney General of California (1938-1942), and then as Governor (1942-1953). Ironically, Warren as a young district attorney had a "tough on crime" reputation, using methods of investigation and interrogation which the Warren Court would later prohibit. As Governor, he was the principal mover behind the internment of Japanese-Americans in World War II.  Warren was the Republican nominee for Vice President in 1948, running with Thomas E. Dewey in the close contest won by Harry Truman. Nominated by Eisenhower and confirmed as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in 1954, Warren was immediately faced with the historic cases of Brown vs Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas. He worked to achieve unanimous decisions in favor of school desegregation "with all deliberate speed." The Warren Court was controversial for decisions which defined broadly the range of constitutionally protected civil rights and civil liberties. Warren retired in 1968. Earl Warren's father, Methias Warren, a former railroad inspector turned landlord, was brutally bludgeoned to death with a pipe in his Bakersfield, California home on May 15, 1938. The murderer left a trail of scattered rent receipts as he fled the scene, but the murder was never solved.
