BYRON R. WHITE
FDC celebrating the sesquicentennial of the US Capital, but with an error in the cachet
First Day Cover signed: "Byron R. White", 6½x3½. FDC celebrating the sesquicentennial of the National Capital, postmarked Washington, D.C., August 2, 1950, 3-cent stamp affixed, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Capital City Washington, D.C. celebrated its 150th anniversary ("sesquicentennial") in 1950, as the stamp correctly notes. The cachet erroneously dated the capital 1850-1950, however. 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). Light surface creases. Corners lightly worn and creased. Toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
