CHARLES EVANS HUGHES
Supreme Court card, affixed to a sheet bearing a magazine photo of him
Supreme Court Card signed: "Charles Evans Hughes", 4¼x3¼ Affixed to an 8½x11 page with typed caption, and a captioned photo from Time magazine dated May 13, 1946. Charles Evans 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 retired in 1941. From the private collection ofRalph Errington Ward (1926-2009). Ward, a fighter pilot and squadron commander in the China-Burma-India Theater of World War II, went on to become President and CEO of Cheseborough-Ponds, Inc., transforming the cosmetics firm into a major home product conglomerate. Lightly toned at edges. Fine condition.
