WILLIAM H. TAFT
William Taft signs his name to a card while in San Francisco.
Autograph Sentiment signed: "With pleasure/Sincerely yours/Wm H. Taft/San Francisco Aug 11 1922.", 3¾x2½ card. 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. Fold crease not at signature. Lightly creased at corners. Lightly foxed. Otherwise, fine condition.
