Kentucky Supreme Court Justices

The names Stanley Forman Reed and Horace Harmon Lurton may not be household words, but these two men probably played a greater role in the history of the United States than any other Northern Kentuckians of their eras. Lurton, who was born in Newport, and Reed, a native of Minerva in Mason County, near Maysville, served as justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. They are among seven Supreme Court justices who were either natives or adopted sons of Kentucky. The others are: Thomas Todd (1807-26) , Robert Trimble (1826-28), John Marshall Harlan (1877-1911), Louis Brandeis (1916-39), Fred M. Vinson (1946-53) Full Story
