Abstract:

Federal judge and lawyer Robert Carter was born March 11, 1917, in Careyville, Florida. Carter earned his LL.M. degree from Columbia University in New York City. Studious and introspective, Carter excelled in school, skipping two grades and graduating from high school by the age of sixteen. Carter was drafted into the armed forces. Deeply affected by pervasive racial prejudice, Carter was hired as an assistant to NAACP lawyer Thurgood Marshall upon his return. During his tenure, Carter argued twenty-two cases before the U.S. Supreme Court— including Brown v. Board of Education in 1954—winning twenty-one of them. In 1972, Carter was appointed judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. He was an advocate of equal rights and made headlines decrying the racial prejudice plaguing the criminal justice system in the United States. Carter passed away on January 3, 2012 at age 94.
