The Great Dissenter

Oliver Wendell Holmes, jr. was born in Boston on March 8, 1841. Outstanding jurist, he served on the Supreme Court of the United States more than twenty-nine years. His pithy opinions are often cited.

He so often dissented in court opinions that he earned the sobriquet "The Great Dissenter."
