LEWIS F. POWELL, JR. and BYRON WHITE
Lewis F. Powell, Jr. and Byron White sign a First Day Cover honoring the Bicentennial of the Signing of the U.S. Constitution.
First Day Cover signed: "Lewis F. Powell Jr" and "Byron White", 6½x3¾. FDC honoring the Bicentennial of the Signing of the U.S. Constitution, 22-cent stamp affixed, postmarked Philadelphia, PA, September 17, 1987, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Background imprinted on verso. Democrat LEWIS F. POWELL, JR. (1907-1998) was appointed Associate Justice by President Nixon. Commissioned on December 9, 1971, he was sworn in on January 7, 1972 and served for 15 years, five months and 19 days before retiring on June 26, 1987. Serving under both Chief Justices Warren Burger and William H. Rehnquist (from 1986), Powell, who had been a moderate before joining the Court, often found himself as the swing vote in a number of important cases. His votes decided the Court's first confrontations with abortion and affirmative action issues. Before joining the Court, the highlight of Powell's legal career was becoming President of the American Bar Association in 1964. BYRON WHITE (1917-2002), a member of the College Football Hall of Fame, served as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court (appointed by President Kennedy) from 1962-1993. Difficult to categorize and suspicious of ideology, White dissented in such landmark cases as Miranda (source of the "Miranda warning", 1966) and Roe v. Wade (1973). Slightly creased. Lightly soiled on verso. Fine condition.
