Typed Letter Signed: "Fred M. Vinson" as U.S. Representative from Kentucky, 1p, 8x10½. On letterhead of Congress of the United States, House of Representative. Washington, D. C., 1938 January 3. To Honorable D. Lawrence Groner, Chief Justice, United States Court of Appeals, Washington, D. C. In full: "I have your letter of December 31st with which you enclose letter to be addressed to the Chairman of the House and Senate Committees on Printing. I think that your proposed letter clearly expresses the purpose you have in mind and can offer no suggestions improving on it. I will be more than glad to present it to the Chairman of the above named committees promptly upon its receipt by me. With kindest of personal regards, I am truly," 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.
