WARREN E. BURGER
Warren E. Burger, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, wrote this letter to former Associate Justice Arthur Goldberg in 1978 to congratulate him on winning the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Autograph letter signed "Warren". 1 page, 5 ¾ x 7 ¾ , 1 sheet folded, on the Chief Justice's Supreme Court stationery. July 31, 1978. In full: "I was in the West attending a series of Judicial Conference Committee meetings when you received the Medal of Freedom. I would surely have been present had I been here. Vera joins you in warmest congratulations on this well deserved honor. Sincerely". This letter was possibly sent to ARTHUR GOLDBERG (1908-1990), who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1978. He was an Associate Justice on the U. S. Supreme Court (1962-1965) as well as Secretary of Labor (1961-1962) and U. S. Ambassador to the United Nations (1965-1968). "Vera" is Burger's wife ELVERA STROMBERG (1907-1994), whom he married in 1933. WARREN E. BURGER (1907-1995), a Republican appointed by President Richard Nixon to replace Chief Justice Earl Warren, served as Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1969 until his retirement in 1986. Nixon appointed him partly because of his conservative decisions. However, he and his three fellow Nixon appointees didn't reverse the civil rights activism of the Warren court. His court upheld Miranda v. Arizona (source of the "Miranda warning"), decided 1973's abortion rights case Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion of fetuses for any reason. Horizontal fold crease. Otherwise in fine condition.
