    U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Collection 1789-1986. An fine group of autographs related to the men who have held this lofty position - the head of the judicial branch of our government and highest judicial officer in the country. Includes the following: John Jay (DS, also signed by Robert Morris); Oliver Ellsworth (2 ADsS, AN); Roger Brooke Taney (ADS); Salmon Portland Chase (partial DS, ALS); Morrison Remick Waite (ALS); Melville Weston Fuller (TLS); Edward Douglass White (TLS); Charles Evans Hughes (TLS); Harlan Fiske Stone (TLS); Frederick Moore Vinson (TLS); Earl Warren (3 TLsS, Signature); Warren Earl Burger (Signed bio w/ photo). This would make an excellent start or a fine addition to any collection of Chief Justices. Some include envelopes of transmittal; condition is generally very good to fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
