WILLIAM O. DOUGLAS
The associate justice thanks the recipient for loaning him a collection of valuable old letters
Typed Letter signed: "W. O. Douglas" in blue inkas Associate Justice, 1p, 5¾x9. No place, 1962 March 19. On his official Supreme Court letterhead to Paul E. Ogle, Allentown, Pennsylvania. In full: "I have been so busy since I returned to Washington that I only now had the chance to go over the letters which you sent to me. [Items not included.] They are very interesting, and I am returning them herewith by registered mail so that they will not get lost./ I am glad to know that you are collecting these./ I was particularly interested in the one of June 7, 1864 by E. J. More, about whom I wrote you the other day./ Many thanks for letting me see these./ With warm personal regards". William Orville Douglas (1898-1980) served as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission from 1937 to 1939, during which time President Franklin D. Roosevelt appointed him Associate Justice of the Supreme Court to succeed Louis D. Brandeis. Justice Douglas's service on the Court totaled 36 years and seven months, longer than any other justice up until that point. He retired in November 1975 and died five years later at the age of 81. He was strongly libertarian in his opinions, distrustful of establishments of all types, and considered himself a voice for the voiceless and powerless. Faint surface creases. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
