Charles Evans Hughes, 1862-1948.  Associate Justice, United States Supreme Court, 1910-1916; Chief Justice of the United States, 1930-1941.  Magnificent 8 x 10 formal portrait photograph boldly inscribed and signed To the Henryetta High School, with best wishes, Charles E. Hughes and dated by Hughes May 27, 1930.  With original mailing envelope addressed by Hughes with a second signature, Hon. Chas. E. Hughes, in the return address.

Hughes inscribed and signed this beautiful photograph to the Henryetta, Oklahoma, High School just over a month after he was sworn in as Chief Justice on February 24, 1930.

The photograph is by Harris & Ewing of Washington, D.C., whose stamp appears in the lower right corner, and it comes in the original blind embossed Harris & Ewing presentation folder along with the hand-addressed envelope in which Hughes himself mailed it.

Hughes wrote twice as many constitutional opinions as any other member of his Court.  Some observers consider Hughes, who had a remarkable intellect and a photographic memory, to be among the great justices in Supreme Court history.

Hughes has boldly inscribed and signed this photograph.  It is in extra fine condition.  The accompanying envelope is also accomplished in black fountain pen and is in fine condition.
