James Clark McReynolds

McReynolds was Assistant Attorney General when he argued against Clarence Darrow and Edgar Lee Masters in U.S. ex rel. Turner v. Williams, 194 U.S. 279 (1904). McReynolds would later become United States Attorney General and an Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court. He would also become one of the four conservative Justices, known as the "Four Horsemen," because of their opposition to President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his New Deal legislation. This prompted Roosevelt's "court packing" proposal in 1937. Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, LC-DIG-hec-02322.
