I would have guessed that JFK paid that debt off by naming White Deputy AG.
I don't think there have been a lot of indebtedness appointments to
the Supreme Court. Earl Warren presumably was one. Joseph Robinson
would have been another, had he lived and Court-packing succeeded in
1937. There have probably been others, but I don't think it's that common.
