Samuel Blatchford Joins the Court


Samuel Blatchford devoted the first 25 years of his career to private practice, specializing in admiralty and international law. During his early career, he collected federal court decisions, eventually publishing 24 volumes entitled Blatchford’s Circuit Court Reports  that were widely used by attorneys and judges. In 1867, Blatchford received his first judicial appointment as a federal district judge in the Southern District of New York. After serving five years, he was appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. In 1882, President Chester A. Arthur nominated him to fill the vacancy created when Supreme Court Justice Ward Hunt retired. Justice Blatchford took his seat on April 3 and served on the Court for 11 years before his death in 1893.

 

Associate Justice Samuel Blatchford. In 1890, the Supreme Court traveled to New York City to attend events celebrating the Centenary of the Federal Judiciary. On February 4, the noted portrait photographer Napoleon Sarony took a group photograph of the Justices as well as individual portraits of each Justice.
