Typed letter signed: "Felix Frankfurter", 5¼x8¾. Framed with photograph to an overall size of 17x14¼. Not matted in Gallery of History style. Written on Supreme Court Letterhead. March 5, 1951. In full: "Thank you for your generous note. I can assure you that I enjoyed what you call my seminar as much, at least, as the members of the Japanese Diet". Felix Frankfurter (1882-1965), who would serve as an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court from 1939-1962, was a member of the Harvard Law School faculty from 1914-1939. His liberal reputation was derived from his many involvements: Frankfurter helped found the American Civil Liberties Union in 1920, and he actively supported the Zionist movement and labor unions. Frankfurter also served as advisor to President Woodrow Wilson at the Paris Peace Conference (1919) and advised Franklin D. Roosevelt during both his governorship and presidency. FDR appointed Frankfurter to the Supreme Court in 1939. Despite his past association with liberal causes, Frankfurter's strong belief in judicial restraint often place him at odds with activist members of the Warren Court. Normal mailing folds. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
