RUFUS W. PECKHAM
The Supreme Court Justice signs the year he endorsed "separate but equal."
Signature: "R.W. Peckham/Asso. Jus. Sup Ct/of U.S./Washington/Sept. 7/96", 6x3½. Appointed by Grover Cleveland in 1896, Rufus W. Peckham (1838-1909) served as Associate Justice until his death in 1909. Peckham voted with the majority in the Plessy v. Ferguson decision (May 18, 1896), the "separate but equal" standard sanctioning segregation. He wrote the opinion of the 5-4 majority in Lockner v. New York (1905), which declared a New York state law limiting the work-week to 60 hours to be an unconstitutional infringement on freedom of contracts. Lightly creased. Light folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
