CHARLES EVANS HUGHES
Special passport for William C. Curtin, signed by Charles Evans Hughes as President Warren G. Harding's Secretary of State in 1921, the same year he became President Warren G. Harding's Secretary of State.
Passport signed "Charles E. Hughes" as President Warren G. Harding's Secretary of State, 2 pages, 8¾x12, 1 sheet folded, front and verso. With red 1¾-inch Great Seal of the United States affixed near left corner and remnants of white paper Great Seal affixed near lower right corner. Washington, DC, Dec. 2, 1921. Passport for Carl P. Winter, who intended to travel to "Mexico on official business for the United States Railroad Administration". Hughes (1862-1948, born in Glen Falls, New York) 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). 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. Chipped at corners. Folds and creased, not near signature. Lightly soiled. Missing right corners. Silk repairs in left corners along spine. Otherwise in fine condition.
