Charles Evans Hughes signs a scarce document signed with his full name to appoint William Oscar Jones to represent the U. S. in Konigsberg, Germany.
Partly Printed Document Signed: "Charles Evans Hughes" as Coolidge's Secretary of State, 1p, 17x14. Washington, 1924 May 5. Certification of William Oscar Jones as "Vice Consul de carrière of the United States of America, has been assigned as Vice Counsel of the United Sates of America at Konigsberg, Germany". Charles E. 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 1930 because of ill health, President Hoover appointed Hughes as Chief Justice, only the second man reappointed to the Supreme Court (the first was John Rutledge). Hughes served until he retired in 1941. Documents signed by Hughes in full are scarce and desirable. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
