Small signed color bust photo of Griffin Boyette Bell, President Jimmy Carter's Attorney General, in a suit-and-tie
Photograph signed "Griffin Bell". Color, 5x7 overall, 4¼x6¼ image, one surface. With black ink notations on verso. Bell (1918-2009, born in Americus, Georgia) was a shrewd and witty United States Attorney General (1977-1979) under President Jimmy Carter, whom he knew from childhood. Bell got his start at the federal level in 1961, when President John Kennedy appointed him to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, Louisiana, a position he held for 15 years. As Attorney General, he supported the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which sets limits on electronic and physical surveillance on foreign spies and terrorists. He also investigated Koreagate, a 1976 scandal allegedly involving South Koreans trying to buy congressional influence. Bell returned to private practice after resigning as Attorney General. Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Impressions from notations on verso show through on image but do not touch signature. Otherwise in fine condition.
