Tom Campbell Clark

Clark, Tom Campbell (1899–1977), U.S. jurist and lawyer, Attorney General under President Harry S. Truman (1945), and associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, 1949–67. Generally a conservative supporter of the government's “antisubversion” actions after World War Π, Clark was often at odds with the Warren Court. However, he joined the other justices in voting to outlaw school segregation in Brown v. Board of Education, 1954. He retired in 1967 when his son, Ramsey Clark, became attorney general.
