President Jimmy Carter.
Stephen Breyer, named to the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, was Carter's last Court of Appeals nominee to be confirmed, and was later elevated to the Supreme Court.
Carter's first Court of Appeals nominee to be confirmed, Procter Ralph Hug, Jr. (right), with another Carter nominee to the same Circuit (the Ninth), Mary M. Schroeder (left).

Following is a list of all United States federal judges appointed by President Jimmy Carter during his presidency.[1] In total Carter appointed 259 federal judges, including 56 judges to the courts of appeals and 203 judges to the United States district courts.

Although Carter made no appointments to the Supreme Court of the United States, two of his Court of Appeals appointees - Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg - were later appointed to the Supreme Court by Bill Clinton. Later presidents have exceeded Carter's total, itself which surpassed the previous record of 231 set by Richard Nixon, but Carter retains the record for the largest number of judicial appointments in a single term.
