Harlan Fiske Stone was the Dean of Columbia Law School and served as the 52nd United States Attorney General before being nominated as an associate justice to the Supreme Court in 1925 by President Coolidge.  After 16 months on the bench President Franklin Roosevelt nominated him as Chief Justice where he served until 1941.  During the 1932-1937 terms, Justices: Stone, Brandeis, and Cardozo were known as the Three Musketeers, the Court’s liberal fraction that was supportive of Roosevelt’s New Deal agenda at a time when most of the Court was hostile to Roosevelt’s policies, calling many proposals unconstitutional.
