Tennessee had enacted a law that said it was "unlawful to teach human evolution in any state-funded school". William Jennings Bryan headed the prosecution and Clarence Darrow headed the defense. The teacher was found guilty and fined $100. An appeal to the Supreme Court of Tennessee upheld the law but overturned the guilty verdict.

In 1954, at the age of 29 years old, Sylvester was alive when on May 17th, the Supreme Court released a decision on Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka.
