  • Biography of Paul H. Douglas | Institute of Government and Public Affairs
    Mayor Kelly s endorsement of him and served as an alderman until 1942 In conscientious compliance with his Quaker faith Douglas previously had opposed military preparation on the part of the United States In 1935 however after hearing Benito Mussolini announce Italy s invasion of hapless Ethiopia from the Piazza Venezia in Rome Douglas was shocked into the conclusion that isolationism was impossible and pacifism self defeating against dictators The Spanish Civil War and the sellout of Czechoslovakia at Munich fortified Douglas s belief that the Neutrality Acts only benefited aggressor nations and that the U S and other democracies must resist totalitarian aggression with military force if necessary Douglas who had once opposed the Reserve Officers Training Corps began to drill regularly with the volunteer Home Defense Unit at the University of Chicago At the time he was approaching his fiftieth birthday He also became an active member of the Committee to Defend America by Aid to the Allies known as the William Allen White Committee In a debate with Norman Thomas a pacifist isolationist and the perennial socialist candidate for president Douglas criticized both pacifists and isolationists for trying to avoid an unpleasant happening by burying their heads in the sand He concluded Personal pacifism is impossible for any nation to follow He also acknowledged that aid to the Soviet Union was necessary to insure Hitler s defeat but added It is no merit on Stalin s part that Hitler finally double crossed his ally In 1942 Paul Douglas tried to win the Democratic nomination for the U S Senate but failed to gain the support of the Cook County Democratic machine In the primary election he carried ninety nine out of 102 counties but lost Cook County and the primary election to Congressman Raymond S McKeough who was subsequently defeated by Senator Brooks an unrepentant Republican isolationist He insisted We cannot let the isolationist minority treat F D R after this war as they treated Woodrow Wilson after the first World War Douglas thereafter prevailed upon Navy Secretary Frank Knox a former Chicago publisher to permit him to enlist in the Marine Corps as a private When discharged from service in 1946 Douglas was a wounded and decorated lieutenant colonel who had served heroically in the First Marine Division at Okinawa and Peleliu where he was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star He underwent five operations on his injured left arm but its functional use was never restored In his first postwar speech having resumed his professorship at the University of Chicago Douglas assumed the stance of an anti Communist activist He strongly opposed the expansionism of the Soviet Union and its ironclad control over Eastern Europe If the experience of the thirties with fascism has taught us anything he declared it was that it is a mistake to make great sacrifices of principle in order to appease aggression He stoutly defended the Marshall Plan the Truman Doctrine and the formation of a strong military alliance

    a now famous scathing dissent in 2000 s Bush v Gore in which he criticized the court s overreach and in a lengthy dissent in Citizens United v FEC he vehemently disagreed that corporations have essentially the same rights as individuals and should be allowed to spend potentially unlimited amounts on elections Justice Stevens received an A B from the University of Chicago and a J D from Northwestern University School of Law Justice Stevens had the privilege to be one of Paul Douglas studentes as a member of the University of Chicago Class of 1941 Justice Stevens said I was privileged not only to know Paul Douglas as one of my professors but also to admire his accomplishments in local politics before his heroic service in World War II Justice Stevens served in the United States Navy from 1942 1945 and was a law clerk to Justice Wiley Rutledge of the Supreme Court of the United States during the 1947 Term He was admitted to law practice in Illinois in 1949 Justice Stevens was Associate Counsel to the Subcommittee on the Study of Monopoly Power of the Judiciary Committee of the U S House of Representatives 1951 1952 and a member of the Attorney General s National Committee to Study Antitrust Law 1953 1955 He was Second Vice President of the Chicago Bar Association in 1970 From 1970 1975 he served as a Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit President Ford nominated him as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court and he took his seat December 19 1975 and retired on June 29 2010 Upon his retirement President Barack Obama said Justice Stevens wore the judicial robe with honor and humility At the ceremony Senator Paul Douglas great grandson Nicholas Torrey made remarks on behalf of the Douglas family He drew close comparisons between Senator Douglas and Justice Stevens All of these issues limitations on executive power a fierce opposition to discrimination a commitment to open government strong protections for our lands and waters and a rejection of the corrupting influence of money in politics were also central to Senator Douglas work and personal opinions Torrey said But Justice Stevens approach to these issues I think also brings out a deeper connection his role as the conscience of the Supreme Court just as Senator Douglas was known as the conscience of the Senate University of Illinois President Robert Easter presented the Douglas medallion to Justice John Paul Stevens with the following words This award serves to remind each of us of our responsibility as public servants Our citizens deserve and have every right to demand that public officials conduct themselves in the same way that government expects citizens to live their lives in honesty integrity civility and in the spirit of cooperation And of Justice Stevens President Easter said His legal views always reflected what was most important to him that the people be treated with equal respect and equal dignity by
