Byron White signs a typed letter saying that by December 1 he will have made a decision about who will clerk for him.
Typed Letter Signed: "Byron White" as Associate Justice, 1p, 8x10½. Supreme Court, Washington, D.C., 1979 April 27. To Timothy P. Greeley, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan. In full: "Your interest in a clerkship with me for the October Term 1980 is appreciated, and I shall give your application full consideration. I would anticipate completing the selection process by Christmas of this year; and if you have not heard from me by December 1 with respect to an interview, you may assume I have made other arrangements. Sincerely yours," 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). TIMOTHY P. GREELEY is now Magistrate Judge in the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Michigan. Folds, vertical fold touches the "h" in White. Fine condition.
