Meet Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan

Elena Kagan
Hunter College High School

Early Years
Born and raised in New York City, Kagan attended Hunter College High School, where she was president of the student government. For a yearbook photo, Kagan (above, center, front row) posed in a judge's robe, holding a gavel. The quote next to her class photo was from Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter: "Government is itself an art, one of the subtlest of arts."
