Lewis Powell - Colorized Portrait

Lewis Franklin Powell, Jr., aka Lewis Powell, was an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. He developed a reputation as a judicial moderate, and was known as a master of compromise and consensus-building. He was also widely well regarded by contemporaries because of his personal good manners and politeness. He has become infamous for drafting the Powell Memoraundum, a confidential memorandum for the US Chamber of Commerce that described a strategy for the corporate takeover of the dominant public institutions of American society.
