Earl Warren was born on March 19th, 1981. His family migrated to the U.S. in early 1886. He was the second of two children, under his sister Ethel.
Becoming Cheif of Justice
Out of High School, he wanted to be a trial lawyer. So he decided to enroll in the University of California, Berkley. He majored in political science, but he wanted to enlist in the war, but he had hemorrhoids. He had them removed then enlisted in the army.
Brown V. Board of Education
In late 1918, Warren returned to Oakland, where he accepted a position as the legislative assistant to Leon E. Gray, a newly-elected member of the California State Assembly.
Circumstances of Death
After Chief Justice Fred Vinson died in September 1953, Warren became the successor because of his law enforcement experience. Eisenhower viewed Warren as a fellow moderate Republican and nominated him on the basis of affiliation with national politics. Warren was sworn in as the 14th Chief Justice on October 4, 1953. Since he was not attracted to national politics, however, his role as a “Republican” was not as predictive of his role on the Supreme Court as Ike had thought.
He helped rule that segregated schools were separate but not equal, and ruled that it needed to be changed. Which meant that Brown won the case and Warren was seen as a protector
Earl Warren retired in 1969, and died on July 9, 1974, in Washington, D.C. of congestive heart failure.
