TLS: "Earl Warren", 1p, 5¾x7¾. On Supreme Court letterhead, Chambers of the Chief Justice, Retired. Washington, D.C., 1970 May 8. To James K. Hoenig, Ring Brothers, Los Angeles, California. In full: "Mrs. Warren and I are looking forward to our annual brunch for the law clerks and their wives on Sunday, May 24th - 12:00 noon - the Congressional Country Club. We hope that you and Mira are planning to be in Washington that weekend, and that you will be able to join us. Please let me know whether either one or both of you can make it." Warren (1891-1974) served as Attorney General of California (1938-1942), and then as Governor (1942-1953). He was the Republican nominee for Vice President in 1948, running with Thomas E. Dewey in the close contest won by Harry Truman. Nominated by Eisenhower and confirmed as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in 1954, Warren was immediately faced with the historic cases of Brown vs Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas. He worked to achieve unanimous decisions in favor of school desegregation "with all deliberate speed." The Warren Court was controversial for decisions which defined broadly the range of constitutionally protected civil rights and civil liberties. Warren retired in 1968 and died in 1974. Fine condition.
