LOUIS D. BRANDEIS
He cannot accept an honorary membership because he is on the Supreme Court.
ALS: "Louis D. Brandeis" as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, 1p, 5x7¾. Washington, D.C., 1939 January 31. To Mr. Irving Reingold. Marked "Personal" by Brandeis. In full: "Re yours of 30th Please explain to your associates that a rule adopted shortly after I became a member of the Court precludes me accepting the honorary membership courteously tendered." In 1912, Brandeis, nicknamed the "people's lawyer", supported Woodrow Wilson's nomination for the Presidency and in 1916, was appointed the first Jew on the Supreme Court. He worked behind the scenes to influence President Wilson to support the Zionist cause. Brandeis did intervene from time to time in political matters. For example, he appealed to President Roosevelt to oppose the British partition scheme of 1937, calling instead for the whole area of Palestine to become a Jewish National Home. Retiring later in 1939, Brandeis died in 1941. Stray blue ink mark at lower left blank margin. Fine condition.
