Having served previously as a circuit court judge, McKenna became an Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court (1898-1925). A centrist on the Court who wrote few dissents, McKenna did write some important decisions, most notably in the case of United States v.

Two adhesive residue marks on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
