WILLIAM H. REHNQUIST and THURGOOD MARSHALL
Color book photograph of Virginia's original copy of the Bill of Rights signed by Justices Rehnquist and Marshall
Book Photograph signed: "William H Rehnquist" and "Thurgood Marshall". Color, 7½x7¼ overall, image 3¼x4 (one surface). Depicts the Bill of Rights. Captioned at lower margin: "Shown above is Virginia's original copy of the Bill of Rights. This document is on loan by the Virginia State Library and Archives for the 50-state Bill of Rights Tour, sponsored by Philip Morris Companies, Inc." Imprinted on verso: "Judges have spoken eloquently about it. Lawyers have made it the cornerstone of many a case. Historians have praised its genius. But the people who must understand the Bill of Rights most are the people it's designed to protect. As Albert Einstein said, 'The strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it.' Of course, you needn't be an Einstein to appreciate the Bill of Rights." WILLIAM HUBBS REHNQUIST (1924-2005) was appointed Associate Justice by President Nixon in 1972, succeeding John M. Harlan. In 1986, he was appointed Chief Justice by President Reagan, succeeding Warren E. Burger. Chief Justice Rehnquist presided over President Clinton's impeachment trial (1998-1999) and it was the Rehnquist Court that voted 5-4 on December 12, 2000 to stop the Florida vote recount, resulting in Gore's concession on December 13th and the election of President George W. Bush. Appointed by Lyndon Johnson on October 2, 1967, THURGOOD MARSHALL (1908-1993) was the first Black American Associate Justice to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court (1967-1991). As legal director for the NAACP, he had previously argued the landmark Civil Rights case, Brown v. Board of Education (1954), before the Supreme Court. Marshall won the case, resulting in the outlawing of racial segregation in public schools. Slightly creased. Irregular right edge from removal from bound book. Fine condition.
