PRESIDENT REAGAN'S STATEMENT AS TO WHAT TYPE OF JUDGES HE WILL APPOINT
RONALD REAGAN. Typed Quotation signed: "Ronald Reagan", 1p, 8x10. In full: "The one thing I seek are judges that will interpret the law and not write the law. Washington, D.C. June 23, 1986." President Reagan made this statement as Chief Justice Warren Burger was completing his last Supreme Court session and preparing to retire. The President's impending nominations would be of enormous importance for the future direction of the Court. On September 26, 1986, a week before the new session of the Supreme Court was to convene, President Reagan promoted Associate Justice William H. Rehnquist to be Chief Justice and appointed Antonin Scalia to succeed Rehnquist as Associate Justice. Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) had two careers: actor and politician. His first movie was Love is on the Air (1937) and his 53rd and last film was The Killers (1964). In 1965, he wrote his autobiography, Where's the Rest of Me?, a line from his role as Drake McHugh in King's Row (1942). Reagan left his job hosting television's Death Valley Days during the 1965-1966 season, when he entered politics. Elected Governor of California in 1966, he was reelected in 1970. Reagan began his campaign for the presidency and narrowly lost the 1976 Republican nomination to Gerald Ford. He was elected President in 1980 and was reelected in 1984. After leaving office in 1989, he wrote his second autobiography, An American Life. On February 6, 2001, Reagan became just the third U.S. President to reach the age of 90 and the nation's longest living President until Gerald Ford (d. 2006) lived 45 days longer. Slightly creased. Fine condition.
