This image appears on the cover of the November 1949 Alumni magazine. The caption reads, "Sherman Minton, LLB '15, remembered at I.U. as a rugged blocker, great outfielder, a brilliant student, and an outstanding orator, today sits as associate justice on the bench of the highest tribunal in the land, the United States Supreme Court. The first Hoosier ever chosen from the State for this great honor, the new justice, better known as 'Shay", was appointed by President Truman to fill the vacancy created by the death of another University alumnus, Wiley B. Rutledge, '19, LLD hon'46."
