These remarks introduced Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., speaking at the Robert H. Jackson Center in Jamestown, New York, on May 17, 2013. This introduction covers Robert H. Jackson’s life path and legal career, including his first big legal case, which grew out of the 1913 strike against Jamestown’s Street Railway Company. This introduction also describes some Jackson-like and Jackson-connected aspects of Chief Justice Roberts’s life and career; including his birth and early boyhood in western New York State, his service as a law clerk to former Jackson law clerk Justice William H. Rehnquist, and his private law practice with former Jackson law clerk E. Barrett Prettyman, Jr.
