WILLIAM D. MITCHELL
As US Attorney General, he promises to prepare legislation on law clerks for the Court of Appeals.
Typed Letter signed: "William D. Mitchell" as Attorney General, 1 page, 8x10½. Washington, D. C., 1931 April 8. On official letterhead to D. Lawrence Groner, Justice, Court of Appeals, District of Columbia. In full: "I am enclosing a memorandum which answers your inquiry about the appointment of law clerks for judges of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia. If the justices of your Court are interested in obtaining such clerks, my suggestion is that they keep the matter in mind and be prepared to present their case before the appropriate committees of the House and Senate at the next session. My administrative division will prepare an amendment to the Statute and submit it to the Budget Bureau. Yours very truly". WILLIAM D. MITCHELL (1874-1955), an infantry officer in the Spanish-American War and World War I and a prominent lawyer based in St Paul, was Solicitor General Under President Coolidge (1925-1929). The Solicitor General represents the US Government in Supreme Court cases. As the third ranking official of the Department of Justice, the Solicitor General can act as Attorney General when the latter and the Deputy Attorney General are absent. Mitchell would soon acquire the full title of Attorney General under President Hoover (1929-1933). He was chief counsel to the Congressional committee investigating the military disaster at Pearl Harbor. Duncan Lawrence Groner (1873-1957), appointed to the D.C. Court of Appeals in 1931, the year he wrote this letter, took senior status there in 1948. Normal mailing folds. Toned. Fine condition.
