He signs a typed letter as Supreme Court Justice (1914), complying with an autograph request from Phillips Exeter Academy.
Typed Letter signed: "Charles E. Hughes" as Associate Justice, 7 x 9. Washington, D.C., 1914 January 26. To L. Preston Hollander, Phillips Exeter Academy, Exeter, New Hampshire. In full: "In accordance with your request I take pleasure in sending you my autograph. Sincerely yours". (TLS references an Enclosure, but no additional item is included here.) Charles E. Hughes 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. Normal mailing fold (not affecting signature). One ½ inch tear on both the upper and lower center edges. Slight toning around edges. Otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by unsigned engraving.
