Supreme Court Justice White: a Legend on the Field and the Bench

Earlier this week, retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White passed away at age 84. He was a unique figure in American history, having reached the pinnacle of achievement in the law and professional athletics.

In the past few days, several articles reflecting on Justice White's place in American history have been written. Former NFL kicker and Kennedy School of Government graduate Nick Lowerey said White "had a remarkable balance of brains and athleticism". Steve Wilstein of the Associated Press interviewed Alan Page, a former defensive tackle for the Minnesota Vikings who is now a Minnesota Supreme Court judge. Page and White met each other when White presided over Page's induction to the College Football Hall of Fame in 1993.
