The handpicked successor of Theodore Roosevelt, Taft lost his bid for a second term in a three-way race between Democratic candidate Woodrow Wilson and Progressive Party candidate Roosevelt. Taft then served as Kent Chair Professor of Constitutional Law at Yale (1913-1921) before being appointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court by President Warren G. Harding in 1921. He served until February 3, 1930, a few weeks before his death. Lightly soiled, minor stains at lower right margin. Stray ink mark at lower left margin above label. Overall, fine condition.
