FRANKFURTER, FELIX. (1882-1965). Austrian-born, American jurist; Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. SP. (“Felix Frankfurter”). 1p. Folio. N.p., N.d. (1939). Inscribed, “For Herbert and Maggie Swope – friends – with the affection of…” to U.S. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Herbert B. Swope (1882-1958) and his wife. A large and impressive bust portrait of Frankfurter by the esteemed Bachrach Studios, signed and dated in pencil by the photographer on the lower blank mount (“Bachrach 1939”). Appointed to the Supreme Court by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in January 1939, the year our photograph was taken, Frankfurter served until August 1962, when he retired after suffering a stroke. In addition to his defense of Sacco and Vanzetti and his liberal court opinions, he is also remembered for his publication Of Law and Men, a collection of essays on such well-known contemporaries as Alfred E. Smith, Alfred North Whitehead, Harold Laski, Lord Lothian, John Dewey, and Thomas Mann. Swope was an influential journalist and editor of the New York World who coined the term “cold war.” Boldly signed on the lower blank mount and in excellent condition.
