HARLAN FISKE STONE
Harlan Fiske Stone signs a typescript of Lincoln's Gettysburg address in blue ink.
Typscript signed: "Harlan F. Stone", 1 p, 5¾x8¾. Printed page, Lincoln's Gettysburg address, with bust view illustration of Lincoln (b/w, 1x1½) below text. 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. Vertical fold crosses "ar" of signature. Fine condition.
