FDC for the 200th anniversary birth of American Independence, eight 13-cent stamps affixed, postmarked Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, July 4, 1976, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Byron R. White (1917-2002), was the first appointment to the Supreme Court by President Kennedy and served from 1962 until his retirement in 1993. White played professional football for the then Pittsburgh Pirates (now the Steelers) to earn money for law school, and was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford until World War II broke out. He returned to the U.S. and enrolled in Yale Law School in 1940 and also played two seasons with the Detroit Lions. At the time of his appointment, he was the youngest member (at age 44) to serve on the Court. Difficult to categorize and suspicious of ideology, White dissented in such landmark cases as Miranda (source of the "Miranda warning", 1966) and Roe v. Wade (1973). Slightly creased at corners.
