Did You Know...

President George Washington and Justice William Cushing


In 1789, William Cushing was among the first five Associate Justices appointed to the newly formed Supreme Court by President George Washington. Later, in 1796, Washington nominated Cushing again, this time as Chief Justice. Although Cushing’s appointment was confirmed, he declined the post citing ill health and continued to serve as an Associate Justice. Cushing’s 20-year tenure, the longest of Washington’s original appointments, provided the final link between the John Jay Court and the John Marshall Court. Justice Cushing died on September 13, 1810 at the age of 78.
