Slideshow: A History of Modern Supreme Court Nominations

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, seen here in 2010 with Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt., was the last justice appointed to the high court.

While Republican leaders in the Senate say they won't bring a Supreme Court nominee to the floor, President Barack Obama says he plans to nominate someone. Justice Antonin Scalia died at age 79 on Saturday.  

Take a look through the most recent high court nominations via CQ Roll Call's photo archives. And yes, the first one is from 1938 because we couldn't help ourselves (the original caption called the cameras "both sounds and stills").
