FREDERICK M. VINSON
The year before his first election to Congress, Vinson signed this oversized this check for $30.48.
Check signed: "Fred M. Vinson", 9x3¼. Louisa, Kentucky, 1923 March 8. Check No. 714 drawn on Vinson's account at the Louisa National Bank, payable to Dixon, Moore & Company for $30.488. Filled out by Vinson. Memo references February invoices. Frederick M. Vinson, a former U. S. Representative from Kentucky (1925-1929, 1931-1937), U.S. Circuit Court Judge (1937-1943) and Secretary of the Treasury (1945-1946), was appointed Chief Justice by President Truman in 1946, serving until his death in 1953. During his term, the Supreme Court rendered important civil liberty decisions. It ruled that the non-Communist statement required by the Taft-Hartley Act did not violate the Constitution (1950), that a speaker who displays "a clear and present danger" of incitement to riot can be arrested (1951) and that segregation is barred in interstate railway travel (1952). Edges frayed from previous binding. Bank processing stamps not effecting signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
