While most know him as the 27th President of the United States, William Howard Taft spent four uncomfortable years in the White House. What held Taft’s true interest was the court and the law, and once he was freed from the responsibilities of the White House, Taft would go on to serve as the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, a position he enjoyed so much that he wrote "I don't remember that I ever was President."
This podcast is the first in a series titled Supreme Court Classics. This series will take a look at just a few of the notable justices who served on the High Court and how their influence is still felt today.
