This paper outlines the Supreme Court judges that heard the "Brown vs. Board of Ed" case in the 1950s. It includes their backgrounds in terms of upbringing, past jobs, and views and how they were expected to vote in what turned out to be a unanimous decision.

From the Paper:

"Because of the distinctive backgrounds and dynamics that existed between the justices on the Supreme Court from 1952 to 1954, a unanimous decision declaring segregated public schools to be unconstitutional was issued in the case of Brown v. Board of Education. Although it has been argued that Brown failed to institute actual societal change, it still is considered to be a landmark decision from a legal perspective. However, its legal impact would not have been as enduring if the justices who decided the Brown case had been divided in their decision. Because of this, it is important to understand the factors that resulted in a unanimous decision. The two central factors to be considered are the unique life experiences of each justice and the desires of both Justice Frankfurter and Chief Justice Warren to deliver a united opinion to the American people."
