President Harry Truman appointed Sherman Minton, former Senator from Indiana, to the US Supreme Court in October 1949 to succeed Wiley Rutledge, who died in office. Minton retired from the Court in 1956 due to poor health, but remained active in politics until his death in 1965. Minton was the last member of Congress to serve on the Supreme Court.

Which President appointed three Chief Justices to the US Supreme Court?

George Washington nominated fourteen justices and appointed eleven, but he had an edge over the other Presidents because he was in office when the Court was created and got to nominate the first seven justices (one declined after being confirmed) in the same year. John Rutledge was seated twice (one as Associate Justice, once as Chief Justice)George Washington's appointmentsJohn Jay.....................1789-1795 (Chief Justice)John Rutledge.............1789-1791William Cushing...........1789-1810James Wilson..............1789-1798John Blair...................1789-1795James Iredell..............1790-1799Thomas Johnson..........1791-1793William Paterson..........1793-1806John Rutledge.............1795-1795 (Chief Justice)Samuel Chase.............1796-1811Oliver Ellsworth...........1796-1800 (Chief Justice)

Who is the only elected official to serve in two branches of the government?

The below information written by someone else may or may not be true. The Vice President is the only elected officer in the federal government who has duties in two branches of government: the legislative (he/she is President of the Senate) and the executive (being VP). This can be found in Article I, Section 3 of the Constitution.~Too many to list. The most notable is probably Taft, who served as both US President and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.In fact, there have been several people who have served in all 3 branches, legislative, executive & judicial, as members of the Supreme Court, members of Congress, and members of a Presidential Cabinet.According to this site: list includes: John Marshall (Sec. of State, VA Rep., Chief Justice), Byrne (Sec. of State, SC Rep. & Sen), Salmon Chase (Sec. of Treasury, OH Sen., Chief Justice), Nathan Clifford (Attorney Gen., ME Rep.), and Lucius Lamar(Sec. of Interior, MS Rep. and Sen.).The list is probably much longer if one includes the lower courts, or Officers of the United States outside of the Presidential Cabinet. For instance, Shermon Minton was a captain of the Army, Representative from IN, and SCOTUS Justice.
