Remarks at the Swearing In of Associate Justice Tom Clark.

August 24, 1949

FOR THE last time Mr. Attorney General, I hand you a Commission as Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

We have had a great Attorney General for the last 4 years, and we will have a great Justice of the Court from now on.

I present you to your wonderful chief.

Note: The President spoke at 3:10 p.m. in the Rose Garden at the White House. Following the President's remarks, Mr. Clark was sworn in as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court by Fred M. Vinson, Chief Justice of the United States.
