I served as Associate Counsel to President Ford and managed the nomination of Justice Stevens. At the time, then AG Edward Levi commented that each of Judge Stevens opinions on the Seventh Circuit represented a "pearl" in a string of beautiful decisions. President Ford gave some early thought to then Rep. Barbara Jordan but quickly narrowed the field of possible candidates to Stevens and Judge Arlin Adams, then a member of the Third Circuit.
The AG's expression of support for Stevens carried the day and President Ford remained forever proud of his choice.
