CHARLES EVANS HUGHES
Signed on a card postmarked in 1930, the year he returned to the US Supreme Court after an absence of 14 years.
Signature: "Charles Evans Hughes", 4½x2½ card. Card bears a postmark: Washington, D.C., August 21, 1930. Charles Evans Hughes (1862-1948) was Governor of New York (1907-1910) when President Taft appointed him Associate Justice. In 1916, Hughes resigned from the Supreme Court having received the Republican nomination for President; he lost to Wilson. President Harding appointed him Secretary of State in 1921, and he remained in that office when Coolidge became President in 1923, staying until 1925. When Chief Justice Taft retired in because of ill health, President Hoover appointed Hughes as Chief Justice (February 13, 1930), only the second man reappointed to the Supreme Court (the first was John Rutledge). The Hughes court approved many exercises of federal power, but struck down a number of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal programs. Hughes served until he retired in 1941. Binding holes on left edge. Lightly toned. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
