'''Harlan Fiske Stone''' (1872–1946) was the [[Chief Justice]] of the [[United States]] from 1941 to 1946, when he died on the bench, and an Associate Justice of the [[U.S. Supreme Court]] from 1925 to 1941.
Justice Stone's most influential opinion for the Court was ''[[United States v. Carolene Products Co.]]'', 304 U.S. 144 (1938), in which he penned a "footnote 4" that became increasingly popular to justify judicial activism with respect to social issues.
