Sherman Minton (1890-1965) was a Democratic Senator from Indiana (1935-1941). Defeated for re-election, he was appointed by President Roosevelt to the US Court of Appeals (1941) and by President Truman (1949) to the Supreme Court, resigning for health reasons in 1956. Minton was an early supporter of what became the desegregation decision of Brown vs. Board of Education (1954). He voted to uphold the strict security laws during the Red Scare of the early 1950s, leading authors Gugin & St. Clair to subtitle his biography "New Deal Senator, Cold War Justice." Hostick was an autograph dealer and Illinois historian. Lightly rippled at upper edge. Fine condition.
