Typed Letter signed: "Harold H. Burton", 1 page, 7½x10. Cleveland, Ohio, 1940 July 31. On his official letterhead as Mayor of Cleveland to Charles Koehler, Saginaw, Michigan. In full: "The people of Cleveland cordially welcome the Phi Sigma Chi Fraternity to its convention to be held here August 22-24, 1940. It is a privilege to be your host and we want to do everything possible to make your visit enjoyable and worth your while. In addition to your convention activities, Cleveland welcomes you as visitors to its industrial plants, colleges, Museum of Art and Garden Center, Lakefront, and Cultural Gardens, residential developments, Metropolitan Park System, County and City buildings and municipal service works, Federal housing developments, the nation's largest commercial airport, a day or evening ride on Lake Erie, or to anything else that may interest you here. We want to know you better and to have you come again. Yours sincerely". Typed biographic note on Burton in lower margin. Harold H. Burton (1888-1964) was Mayor of Cleveland (1931-1932, 1935-1940) and Republican Senator from Ohio (1941-1945). Appointed by President Harry Truman, Burton served as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court from 1945 to 1958. A liberal on civil rights issues, Burton joined several decisions against racial segregation. He was more conservative on civil liberties questions, voting to uphold loyalty oaths and to deny First Amendment claims by Communist Party members. Top left corner torn. Multiple mailing folds.
