George Sutherland was born in England but raised in Utah from which he served in the U.S. House and Senate. In 1921-1922, he was the United States Consul at the Hague.  President Harding nominated Sutherland to the Supreme Court in 1922.  He was known for being the leader of the Four Horsemen, the conservative bloc of the court that was instrumental in striking down President Roosevelt’s New Deal legislation.  Sunderland held Roosevelt in low regard, describing him as an “utter incompetent.”  Sutherland was a longstanding women’s rights advocate who introduced the Nineteenth Amendment to the Senate and helped draft the Equal Rights Amendment.

US Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest federal court of the United States, established in 1788 pursuant to Article Three of the U.S. Constitution.  It has the ultimate jurisdiction over all federal and state court cases involving federal laws.  The Court normally consists of the Chief Justice and eight associate justices, who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate.  Justices have lifetime tenure unless they resign, retire or are removed after impeachment.  The Supreme Court is one of the three branches of the federal government which also includes the Executive (President) and Legislative (Senate and House of Representatives).

This U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice George Sutherland History Mug is part of our U.S. Supreme Court series which includes all the U.S. Supreme Court Justices.

The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history.  The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton.  He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia-tone.  The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
