    Taft Supreme Court signed photograph

    William H. Taft Supreme Court Photograph Signed by All Nine Justices ca. 1927. B/W, 9.75" x 7.75", showing four seated and five standing justices, with Taft sitting prominently in the center. The justices, all signing below the image, include Taft, James C. McReynolds, Oliver W. Holmes Jr., Edward T. Sanford, George Sutherland, Pierce Butler, Willis Van Devanter, Harlan F. Stone, and Louis D. Brandeis. Taft has the distinction of being the only person to serve both as president and as a Supreme Court chief justice. (His lifelong desire had been to be chief justice, not president.) He served as chief justice until his death in 1930. This photograph is affixed to a thick and slightly larger paperboard (12" x 10.5").

    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.
