FRANK MURPHY
He apologizes for the delay in a reply to a letter, and sends an autographed photo
Typed letter signed: "Frank Murphy", in black ink, 1 page, 7¼x10½. July 20, 1937. Yonkers, New York. In full: "Dear Joseph Liga: I regret that due to the many labor problems and the flood of administrative duties which have taken up practically all of my time since inauguration, I have neglected to reply to your fine letter. You may be sure it is a pleasure to send you an autographed photo [item not included]. With best wishes, 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. Multiple folds. Lightly toned. Surface creases. Corners slightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
