CHARLES EVANS HUGHES. Signature: "Sincerely yours,/Charles E. Hughes", 3½x2¼. Imprinted: "Autograph" at upper margin. After serving as Governor of New York (1907-1910) and U.S. Secretary of State under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge (1921-1925), Charles Evans Hughes (1862-1948) was appointed the 11th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (1930-1941) by President Herbert C. Hoover (1874-1964). In this position, Hughes helped the Court make difficult decisions regarding the constitutionality of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal legislation, and he took a strong stand that prevented the President from "packing the Court." Hughes, who promoted free speech, equal protection under the law and civil liberties, had been appointed as an Associate Justice by President William H. Taft in 1910, but he had resigned in 1916 to run for the presidency. Hughes, therefore, was only the second man reappointed to the Supreme Court (the first was John Rutledge). Slightly soiled. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 19¾x14¼.
