Additional Information Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. (American, 1841–1935) served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932 and as Acting Chief Justice of the United States in January–February 1930. He is perhaps best known for his “clear and present danger” test, which was introduced in Schenck v.
