Wilson" and Secretary of Commerce "William C. Redfield", 1p, 7x8½. These were the ten original members of President Woodrow Wilson's Cabinet who took office on March 5, 1913. On August 29, 1914, President Wilson appointed Attorney General McReynolds as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court to replace Horace H. Lurton, who had died. The election of 1912, which swept the Democrats into the White House, was unique in U.S. history. There were three major nominees instead of the usual two. The losing candidates were the incumbent President, Republican William H. Taft, and his predecessor, Republican Theodore Roosevelt, running as the Progressive Party nominee. For the only time in history, a major party candidate finished third (Taft). The Republicans were split, the Democrats were unified and for the first time in 16 years, there was a Democrat in the White House. Irregular left edge from binding. Heavily toned, touching all writing. Stray pencil mark at blank right margin. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso lightly show through in blank margin. Two minor tears at left edge, not touching signatures. Minor ink smears, fully legible signatures. Otherwise, fine condition.
