Brandeis handwrote, signed and dated this letter in 1901, apologizing for not contacting a Cott Tyler due to his mother's illness
Autograph letter signed "Louis D. Brandeis", 1 page, 5x7¾. Petersham, Massachusetts, Aug. 20, 1901. Addressed to Cott Tyler, Esq. In full: "Dear Tyler: I expected to hear from you about Aug 15 My mothers illness prevented My leaving here. Please let me know how matters stand M Bryant Coeru d'Alene Co Yours Truly." Accompanied by: Western Union Telegraph Company telegram in unknown hand, "Sears Bldg Boston Mass Your telegram received call me up here at three oclock Louis D Brandeis". In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson appointed Louis Dembitz Brandeis (1856-1941) as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Brandeis, the first Jewish Associate Justice, established his reputation of handling cases involving social problems during a year of legal practice in Boston, specialized in labor-management suits and developed the Brandeis brief, still used as a legal reference. Brandeis' support of President Wilson's theory of enforced business competition and his crusade against monopolies led to the passage of the Federal Trade Commission Act (1914) as well as Brandeis' appointment. Until his retirement in 1939 at the age of 82, Brandeis continued to make his mark on the issues of labor, competition, economics and social reform. Letter is lightly toned and creased. "Tru" in letter's salutation is smeared. Random ink stains. Folded twice horizontally and unfolded. Telegram is lightly toned and creased. Two binder holes near right edge of letter and upper edge of telegram. Otherwise in fine condition.
