FELIX FRANKFURTERBlack and white 3½x5½ publicity photograph of Felix Frankfurter wearing a suit and tie Printed Photograph Mount inscribed and signed: "For Senor Virgilio A. Manas/with the good wishes of/Felix Frankfurter". B/w, 3½x5½ overall, image 2¾x3½ (two surfaces). Printed caption in Spanish affixed to verso. Vienna-bornJewish juristFrankfurter (1882-1965) had served as an assistant to New York lawyer Henry L. Stimson from 1906-1909 and to Secretary of War Stimson (1911-1913). He taught at Harvard Law School from 1914 until 1939, when he was appointed Associate Justice of the Supreme Court by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In this letter, he is likely referring to remarks he made regarding food aid to Germany or Russia, both of whom persecuted Polish Jews before and during World War I. After the war, future President Herbert Hoover was sent by President Woodrow Wilson to co-ordinate efforts to feed Europe's starving. The American Relief Administration fed over 300 million people in 21 countries in Europe and the Middle East until it was officially dissolved on June 30, 1919. Considerable controversy arose when Hoover wanted to extend aid to Germany, and it was months before food was sent there. In 1919, Russia also asked for aid in the wake of a severe famine that left thousands starving. The Polish Jews, who hadfirst experienced persecution in Poland in 1399, had suffered considerably under the Russians. They were placed in ghettos, deprived of their livelihoods and faced deportation and even death. Lamentably, Poland's Jews were to suffer even more catastrophically in WW II. Lightly soiled. Fine condition.
