Burger, With deepest gratitude and fond remembrance for wise guidance in an introduction to my career at the bar. W. Reece Bader. May 31, 1968.” W. Reece Bader was a law clerk for Judge Burger while he was serving on the United States Court of Appeals, the year before Burger was nominated by President Nixon to serve as the 15th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
Judge Warren E. Burger (1907-1995) served as the 15th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He was nominated in 1969 by President Richard Nixon and served until his retirement in 1986. His nomination was due to the retirement of Chief Justice Earl Warren, which was announced during the final months of the Johnson administration. President Johnson nominated Associate Justice Abe Fortas to the position of Chief Justice, but the nomination was filibustered in the Senate. After 17 years on the Supreme Court, Burger retired in 1986 and was succeeded by William Rehnquist. He died in 1995.
