MORRISON REMICK WAITE (1816-1888) was appointed the seventh Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court (to succeed Salmon P. Chase) by President Grant in 1874. Waite, who first came to prominence for representing the U.S. in the Alabama claims, was largely responsible for helping to interpret Amendments adopted after the Civil War to the U.S. Constitution. Assuming a large portion of the work of the Court, he wrote over 1,000 opinions in his 14 years on the bench. Appointed by James Buchanan on January 21, 1858. NOAH SWAYNE(1804-1884), who moved from Virginia to Ohio because he opposed slavery, was active in the formation of the Republican Party. Appointed by Abraham Lincoln on January 27, 1862, Swayne served as Associate Justice until he retired on January 24, 1881. Slightly soiled. Swayne's title, which he has written with a different pen, has run slightly. Otherwise, fine condition.
