ROBERT TODD LINCOLN, CO-SIGNED BY: HENRY B. BROWN
This clipping includes signatures of the U.S. politician and Supreme Court Justice
Signatures: "Robert T Lincoln", and on verso, "H.B. Brown" 6½x1¼. Ink note at lower margin of Brown's side: "15/3-99". ROBERT TODD LINCOLN (1843-1926), the eldest and only surviving son of President Abraham Lincoln, was Secretary of War in Garfield's Cabinet (1881-1885) and U.S. Minister to Great Britain from 1889-1893. In 1897, upon the death of George Pullman, Lincoln, who had moved to Chicago in May 1865, the month after his father's assassination, became acting President of Pullman's company. He served as permanent President from 1901-1911 and Chairman of the Board from 1911-1922. Lincoln, who had been present at three presidential assassinations (those of his father, James A Garfield and William McKinley), made his last public appearance on May 30, 1922 at the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. HENRY BILLINGS BROWN (1836-1913) was an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court from January 5, 1891 to May 28, 1906. A well-regarded federal judge in Michigan, Brown was appointed to the Court by President Benjamin Harrison at the urging of Howell Edmonds Jackson, who was himself appointed to the Court three years later. Brown authored in excess of 450 majority opinions during his tenure, giving preference to private property and free competition. He is probably best remembered for the opinion he authored for the majority: Plessy v. Ferguson, in which he reflected the views of the day that whites were biologically separate from Blacks and superior to them. Irregularly cut. Light show through of writing on front. Lightly soiled at lower left corner on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
