Sale Price $637.50
BYRON R. WHITE. Supreme Court Card signed: "Byron R. White", 4x3. Imprinted: "Supreme Court of the United States/Washington 25, D.C." Byron R. White (1917-2002), a member of the College Football Hall of Fame, served as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court from 1962-1993. White, who was appointed to the Supreme Court by President John F. Kennedy, proved to be far more conservative than most Democrats. Fearing that criminals released on technicalities would repeat their crimes, he dissented in Miranda vs. Arizona (1966), the ruling that required police to read a suspect his rights before questioning. White also believed that laws should be changed through the political arena rather than in the courts and was therefore reluctant to overturn existing laws. However, he helped assure that each individual's views would be weighed equally by supporting the "one man, one vote" form of legislative reapportionment (1964). Throughout his career, White consistently opposed laws discriminating against women, children and Blacks, and he supported (from 1976) the death penalty in extreme cases. Slightly soiled, not at signature. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 21x16.
