James Madison


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

Madison appointed two men to the U.S. Supreme Court—Joseph Story and Gabriel Duvall. Madison appointed the thirty-two-year-old Story to the Court in 1811, making him the youngest person ever to serve on the high court. Story was a highly respected legal scholar and attorney who later helped found Harvard Law School. He served more than thirty-two years on the Court. Duvall served twenty-three years on the Court, though he authored few opinions and nearly always agreed with Chief Justice John Marshall.
