About The Book

Ed Cray recounts the truly American story of Earl Warren in the finest and most comprehensive biography of one of the most notable Chief Justices in the nation’s history.

Rightly remembered not only as one of the great chief justices of the Supreme Court, but as one of the most influential Americans of the twentieth century, Earl Warren’s Court decisions still define American freedoms.

Including details from interviews with nearly all of the Chief’s law clerks, four of his children, and more than a hundred others, as well as thousands of personal letters and official documents, Cray weaves a tale of political intrigue, judicial politics, family reminiscences, and a loving marriage.
