Not much joy in last 60 years for Fourth Circuit nominees to U.S. Supreme Court

Is that Legal? has this post with a copy of a memo from the then-Attorney General to President Roosevelt, which mentions Fourth Circuit Judge John J. Parker, and Southern Appeal has this link with to Wm. Rehnquist's memo to the White House, about Fourth Circuit Judge Clement F. Haynsworth.

I think these were the last two Fourth Circuit judges nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court, and the U.S. Senate voted against them both.

In this editorial, George Will pumps up Judge Wilkinson of the Fourth Circuit for the Supreme Court.
