FRED M. VINSON
Brief signed letter on Treasury Department card, affixed below his image from a magazine cover
Typed Note Signed: "Fred M. Vinson" as Secretary of the Treasury, 1 page, 5½x4¼ card, 8½x11 overall. Washington, D.C., 1945 July 28. Card printed with his title, affixed below his color image cut from a magazine cover captioned "Reconversion Boss Vinson". To "Dear Captain Ward", in full: "It gives me great pleasure to add my autograph to your collection. Sincerely". Frederick M. Vinson (1890-1953), 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. 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). From the private collection of Ralph Errington Ward (1926-2009) 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. Fine condition.
