Stevens' Childhood: Early Years
U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens has recalled an idyllic childhood in prior interviews. In the first photo, from left, is Stevens with his brothers Bill and Jim; in the second, Stevens pretends to kick his brother Bill. Both photos of the brothers were taken when they were at the family’s compound in Lakeside, Mich. The city was a summer retreat for many families who, like the Stevenses, lived in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood on the South Side.
