Louis Brandeis, first Jew nominated for the Supreme Court...
Item # 653003
January 29, 1916
CHICAGO HERALD, January 29, 1916 The top of a middle column of the ftpg. is headed: "BRANDEIS, NAMED FOR HIGH COURT, FACES BIG FIGHT" "Many Senators Oppose Boston Lawyer, Chosen to Fill Vacancy on Supreme Bench" "First Jew For Post" "Wilson Will Lead Contest for Confirmation and is Confident His Candidate Will Be Approved". The report takes the balance of the column and carries over to pg. 2 as well. The ftpg. features a nice photo of him headed: "Nominated For Supreme Court." Brandeis would be approved by the Senate in early June.
Sixteen pages, nice condition.
