The 14th Chief Justice of the United States, Earl Warren, was viewed as a courageous leader who sought to adapt accepted legal principles to modern social conditions. In 1954, he spoke for a unanimous court in the Brown vs. Board of Education case, one of the most important cases in Supreme Court history. He stated, "In the field of public education, the doctrine of "separate but equal" has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal." Warren is pictured on the 29¢ Great Americans stamp.
 
Issued between 1980 and 1999, the Great Americans definitive series features 63 designs, making it the larges set of face different Regular Issue stamps issued in the 20th century. One stamp honors a couple (Lila and Dewitt Wallace) while the remaining 62 commemorate individuals.
 
The series is characterized by a standard definitive size, simple design and monochromatic colors. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing produced most of the stamps, but some were printed by private firms. Several stamps saw multiple printings. The result is many different varieties, with tagging being the key to understanding them.
