First African-American appellate judge sworn in...



Item # 665398

July 20, 1950

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 20, 1950 

* William H. Hastie U.S. Senate confirmation
* 1st Negro United States Appellate Judge


Page 50 has a small and somewhat discrete article headed: "Negro Judge Confirmed" "Senate Unanimously Approves Hastie for Appeals Bench" (see) I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertising of the day. Complete in 52 pages, light toning at the margins, generally very nice.
