Earl Warren’s Grade School Desk

“Some years ago... the superintendent of schools in Bakersfield, wrote to me at the Court and told me that in remodeling the school I attended they discovered my first grade school desk with my name scratched into the wood, and asked if I wanted it. He said the School Board refrained from publicizing it because of the likelihood of children now in school following my example and defacing their desks. Of course I wanted it. He sent it to me, and it is indeed a relic. The cast-iron base of the desk is not only rubbed smooth, but also considerably worn down by the little feet of at least sixty-five years of first-graders since I used it.”

– Chief Justice Earl Warren

This desk is currently on view as part of the Reading the Law exhibition at the Court.
