John Adams


Who were Adams’s U.S. Supreme Court appointees?

Adams nominated three men to the U.S. Supreme Court during his tenure: Bushrod Washington, Alfred Moore and John Marshall. Washington, a nephew of former President George Washington, served for nearly thirty years on the court. Moore, the shortest man ever to serve on the court, only served four years. Marshall became the court’s fourth chief justice in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court, where he served for thirty-four years. Many consider John Marshall to be the greatest jurist in Supreme Court history.
