Did You Know...

The Only Justice Appointed from Utah


George Sutherland was born in Buckinghamshire, England in 1862. He and his parents immigrated to the United States in 1863 and settled in the Utah territory. In 1883, Sutherland and his father opened a law practice in Provo. When the territory achieved statehood in 1896, he was elected to the first state Senate. Four years later, Sutherland was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, and in 1904 to the U.S. Senate. After 12 years in the Senate, Sutherland returned to private practice. President Warren G. Harding nominated him to the Supreme Court of the United States on September 2, 1922, and he was confirmed by the Senate on October 2. George Sutherland, the lone Justice appointed from the state of Utah, served on the Court for 15 years before retiring.
