LOUIS D. BRANDEIS. ALS: "Louis D. Brandeis" as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, 1p, 5x8. Washington, D.C., 1933 October 12. To Sanford Butts. In full: "Re yours of 9th. My thanks for your letter with the Enclosures returned herewith. My only knowledge of Samuel Moore was that flowing from his appealing letter submitted to you by my Secretary I am entirely content knowing that the matter has received your attention". Handwritten postscript: "Your annual report for 1932 makes me eager to hear of the progress since". On June 1, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson appointed LOUIS DEMBITZ BRANDEIS as the first Jew on the U.S. Supreme Court. Brandeis served until he retired in 1939 at the age of 83. It is said that one of the factors leading to the support of Brandeis' confirmation to the Court by powerful Republican Senator Henry Cabot Lodge was the probability that the popular lawyer, known as the "people's attorney", would run against Lodge for his Senate seat in the November 7, 1916 election. This was the first Massachusetts U.S. Senate election held under the 17th Amendment whereby the people, not the state legislature, elected U.S. Senators. SANFORD BUTTS worked in the Department of Justice, Division of Mail and Files. Receipt stamp at upper center, 3 file holes at left margin touch 1 letter. Lightly creased at left edge, else fine condition.
