Typed Letter Signed: "Harry A. Blackmun" as Associate Justice, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1980 March 3. On Court letterhead to Timothy P. Greeley, Detroit, Michigan. In full: "I have now appointed my four clerks fro 1980-81. You were not among those selected. The choice this year was very difficult, for approximately 200 filed applications. I appreciate your interest in the clerkship. You already have a splendid record, and you should enjoy success in whatever branch of the legal profession you choose to follow. You have my best whishes fro happiness in the years ahead. Sincerely." Blackmun, appointed by President Nixon in 1970, was initially allied with the conservatives on the Court, but is best remembered for his 1973 majority opinion in Roe v. Wade, legalizing abortion. He retired in 1994 and died in 1999. In March, 2004, Blackmun's papers collected at the Library of Congress were opened for public view: 1,576 boxes of papers and 38 hours of oral history. The papers, and particularly the videotapes, are providing candid looks behind the scenes at the Court's deliberations. Fold creases not at signature. Fine condition.
