Biography | show moreshow less
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841-1935), son of the renowned poet, served as a Justice of the Massachusetts State Supreme Court (1882-1902). Referred to as "The Great Dissenter" who spent nearly all of his time serving the court, sitting on the bench and writing decisions. By the time Holmes had been appointed Chief Justice of that bench (September 12, 1899), he had written about a thousand decisions. Holmes considered his ability "to think under fire-to think for action upon which the great interests depend" his forte. He was appointed Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1902, serving on the Court from 1902-1932.
