U.S. Supreme Court law clerks, October 1947 term. From left, front row: Stanley L. Temko (law clerk to Wiley Blount Rutledge Jr.), Lawrence F. Ebb (Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson), John A. Thompson (Vinson) and Robert B. von Mehren (Justice Stanley Forman Reed). Middle row: James M. Marsh (Justice Robert H. Jackson), Albert J. Rosenthal (Justice Felix Frankfurter), James Lake (Justice Harold Hitz Burton), John Paul Stevens (Rutledge) and John B. Spitzer (Reed). Back row: Bruce K.
