FELIX FRANKFURTERHe pens a note for a fan on this 5½x7½ photo-mount, framed to an overall size of 15½x25¼ Photograph Mount inscribed and signed: "For Albert di Pippo/with the good wishes of/Felix Frankfurter". B/w, 5½x7½ overall, image 2x3¼ (two surfaces). A renowned legal scholar, Felix Frankfurter (1882-1965), as an Associate Justice, influenced Supreme Court decisions for more than twenty years (1939-1962). Having served as an advisor to the NAACP and co-founder of the American Civil Liberties Union, Frankfurter played a pivotal role in deciding the famous school desegregation case Brown vs. the Board of Education (1954), ensuring its historic importance by securing a unanimous decision. However, his strides as a judicial reformer were always balanced against his belief that society's ills must be corrected through the legislative branch. Therefore, Frankfurter dissented when the Court ruled in favor of legislative reapportionment (Baker vs. Carr, 1962), which he felt was a strictly political problem. This staunch advocate of judicial self-restraint stabilized the liberal Earl Warren Court and promoted "procedural fairness" in criminal cases. A legal aide to Woodrow Wilson and an informal advisor to Franklin D. Roosevelt, Frankfurter was presented with the Medal of Freedom by John F. Kennedy in 1963. Left edge irregularly cut. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 15½x25¼.
