Supreme Court Justice, Frank Murphy replies to request for photograph
Typed Letter Signed "Frank Murphy.", 1p. 8x10½, Supreme Court Letterhead. Washington D.C., 1949 June 16. To: Mr. Eddie Sousa, Livermore, California. In Full: "Dear Eddie Sousa: Thank you for your kind letter. I am sorry you have been ill so long and I trust your recovery will be constant and complete. I, too, have had a difficult time but I am fit again and able to bend to the task once more. At present my supply of pict-ures has been exhausted. However, I am sending a list of the U.S. Supreme Court Justices, their auto-graphs together with some literature about the high court. Do write me again. Sincerely," FRANK MURPHY (1890-1949), a former Mayor of Detroit (1930-1933), Governor-General of the Philippine Islands (1933-1936) and Governor of Michigan (1937-1938), became FDR's Attorney General on January 2, 1939, serving until January 17, 1940. On January 18, 1940, he was sworn in as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, serving until his death in 1949. As an Associate Justice, Murphy wrote many of the Court's opinions concerning civil liberties, including that for the 1940 Thornhill v. Alabama case, in which he clarified labor's right to strike, holding that peaceful picketing was a manifestation of freedom of speech. Lightly creased at upper left. Fold crease-not affecting signature. Fine condition.
