Felix Frankfurter writes an autograph note inside a first edition of his book The Business of the Supreme Court, A Study in the Federal Judicial System.
Autograph Note Signed in book: "FF." The Business of the Supreme Court, A Study in the Federal Judicial System by Felix Frankfurter and James M. Landis, hardcover, 349p, 6½x9½. First edition. The Macmillan Company, New York: 1927. On first blank flyleaf, in full: "Dear Walter-/The preface and the last chapter may interest you./Always Yours". Dated by Frankfurter: "Nov 12/27". Vienna-born Jewish jurist Frankfurter (1882-1965) had served as an assistant to New York lawyer Henry L. Stimson from 1906-1909 and to Secretary of War Stimson (1911-1913). He taught at Harvard Law School from 1914 until 1939, when he was appointed Associate Justice of the Supreme Court by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In this letter, he is likely referring to remarks he made regarding food aid to Germany or Russia, both of whom persecuted Polish Jews before and during World War I. After the war, future President Herbert Hoover was sent by President Woodrow Wilson to co-ordinate efforts to feed Europe's starving. The American Relief Administration fed over 300 million people in 21 countries in Europe and the Middle East until it was officially dissolved on June 30, 1919. Considerable controversy arose when Hoover wanted to extend aid to Germany, and it was months before food was sent there. In 1919, Russia also asked for aid in the wake of a severe famine that left thousands starving. The Polish Jews, who had first experienced persecution in Poland in 1399, had suffered considerably under the Russians. They were placed in ghettos, deprived of their livelihoods and faced deportation and even death. Lamentably, Poland's Jews were to suffer even more catastrophically in WW II. Light wear on cover and spine. Signature page slightly shaded. Internally sound. Overall, fine condition.
