FDR defends "packing" the Supreme Court...



Item # 659849

March 10, 1937

THE SPRINGFIELD UNION, Mass., March 10, 1937 

* FDR defends "packing" the Supreme Court
* Includes his Fireside Chat


The front page has the 3-line, 3-column heading: "ROOSEVELT ASSAILS SUPREME COURT AS 'SUPER LEGISLATURE'", with the subheading: "Denies He Intends To Place 'Spineless Puppets on Bench", with "President Answers Charge of 'Packing'; Says Aim Is to 'Save Constitution From Court and Court From Itself'". The article continues on page three. Perhaps more significantly is the complete text of the Fireside Chat he delivered to the American people in defense of his position. See images for details of this historic decision.
Other news of the day and period advertising is found throughout.
Complete in 30 pages. The page three continuation of the front page article has been archivally mended from the reverse side - with no loss of text. The issue is otherwise in very good condition.
