Education

Which twentieth century U.S. Supreme Court justices never received a high school diploma?

Amazingly, Justice Charles Evans Whittaker, who served on the Court from 1957 to 1962, never graduated from high school or college. He obtained entrance to Kansas City Law School based on high test scores. Similarly, Justice James Francis Byrnes also never graduated from high school. He dropped out of school at age 14 to work as a law clerk.
