Foreign Born Appointments to the Highest Court

Supreme Court Justices do not have to be born in the United States to serve on the Court. In total, six Justices were born outside the United States. These include three appointments by President George Washington: James Wilson (Scotland), James Iredell (England), and William Paterson (Ireland). David Brewer (Asia Minor, which became modern day Turkey) was appointed by President Benjamin Harrison and George Sutherland (England) was appointed by President Warren G. Harding. The most recent foreign born Justice was Felix Frankfurter (Austria), appointed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939.
