Charles Hughes becomes Chief Justice when William Taft resigns...



Item # 556150

February 4, 1930

THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, NY, February 4, 1930

* Charles Evans Hughes takes over
* William Howard Taft resigns
* Chief Justice of the United States


This 52 page newspaper has a four column headline on the front page: "PRESIDENT NAMES HUGHES CHIEF JUSTICE AS TAFT RESIGNS BECAUSE OF ILL HEALTH WHEN TRIP TO ASHEVILLE FAILS TO AID HIM" with many subhead and related photos. (see photos)

Other news of the day. Some browning and wear around the margins, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.
