CHARLES EVANS HUGHES
Passport for Carl P. Winter signed by Charles Evans Hughes as as President Warren G. Harding's Secretary of State in 1923. This document was signed two days before Harding's death in San Francisco, California and three days before Calvin Coolidge was sworn in as president.
Passport signed "Charles E. Hughes" as President Warren G. Harding's Secretary of State, 2 pages, 8¾x12. 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, July 31, 1923. Passport for Carl P. Winter, who intended to travel to "All Countries/including Sweden/and Denmark" for "Research work/and travel". This passport was signed two days before Harding's death in San Francisco, California and three days before Vice President Calvin Coolidge was sworn in as the 30th president of the United States. Hughes stayed on as Coolidge's Secretary of State until 1925. 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.
