U.S. SENATOR AND CHIEF PROSECUTOR IN THE SCOPES TRIAL
 
TOM STEWART. Signature: "Tom Stewart/US Senator - Tennessee/1939-1949 -", 3½x2 card. Arthur Thomas "Tom" Stewart (1892-1972) was a Democratic U.S. Senator from Tennessee from 1939-1949. A former attorney, Stewart served as District Attorney for the 18th Circuit Court from 1923-1939. During this time, he was the Chief Prosecutor in the Scopes Trial. It was Stewart who designed the prosecution's strategy to focus on preserving political control over the schools exclusively within the state legislature. This strategy prevented the defense from introducing scientific evidence that there was no conflict between evolution and the creation story told in the Bible and led to Scopes being found guilty in order to appeal his case before the Tennessee Supreme Court. Minor crease at upper right blank corner. Slightly soiled at lower right margin. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
