Supreme Court: Stanley Forman Reed

On this date in 1980, Stanley Forman Reed died at the age of 95 years, 93 days. Born on the last day of 1884, he was the US Solicitor General from 1935 to 1938, when Franklin Roosevelt appointed him to the Supreme Court. Reed retired from the Court in 1957.

Reed was the longest-lived member of the Supreme Court until 2015, when John Paul Stevens (who retired from the Court in 2010) exceeded his record.
