WILLIAM H. TAFT
President Taft writes a quick note to his Assistant Secretary about a case.
Autograph Note Signed: "W H T" as President on a White House card, 4¼x2½. In full: "Tell Asst Sec Winthrop that I would like to see him about the Robnett case." Winthrop was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. William Howard Taft (1857-1930) was Governor of the Philippines (1901-1904), Secretary of War (1904-1909), 27th of the United States (1909-1913) and Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court (1921-1930). His bruising convention battle with former ally and patron Theodore Roosevelt in 1912 split the Republican Party, allowing the election of Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Taft as President was caught in the middle between progressives and conservatives and constrained by a more limited view of Presidential powers than TR had possessed, but historians tend to view his term of office more positively than did most of his contemporaries. His skills as Chief Justice are widely recognized. In the years between his Presidency and his appointment as chief justice, Taft taught at Yale Law School. Lightly soiled. Fine condition.
