HARLAN FISKE STONE
Signed Autograph Letter from Maine, stating that his previous letter had gone un-mailed
Autograph Letter signed: "H. F. Stone", 8 x 10 ¼ ,one page. Island Harbor, Maine, July 18, n.y. On his letterhead of the Dean's Office, Columbia University Law School (crossed out) to "Dear Mr. Ulam". In full: "I have just discovered that through an oversight, the letter I mailed you several days ago was not mailed. I am going down to the P. O. to mail it with my other mail. Hope the delay has not inconvenienced you. Kind regards". Harlan Fiske Stone (1872-1946) had decreased corruption in the Justice Department while serving as United States Attorney General (1924-1925). As an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court (1925-1941), he served under both William H. Taft and Charles Evans Hughes. Although a Republican appointee, Stone had often supported Franklin Roosevelt's "New Deal" legislation during Roosevelt's first term, when many such measures were being declared unconstitutional by the Court's majority. FDR nominated him for Chief Justice in 1941, and he filled that role until his death. Stone began teaching at Columbia Law School in 1899, serving as Dean from 1910 to 1923. Vertical and horizontal folds affecting text, one vertical fold crosses the "n" in Stone. Otherwise, fine condition.
