Autograph; Inscribed and signed on ffep by Elizabeth Black, Mrs. Hugo L. Black to her good friend and fellow wife of a Supreme Court justice Andy Stewart, Mrs. Potter Stewart. The inscription reads as follows: "For Andy Stewart / And in loving/ memory of Potter, who / served on the Court / with Hugo for many / years. / With my love and / good wishes. / Elizabeth / February 27, 1986 / (Hugo's 100th birth anniversary)" Clean and tight in original black cloth binding in very good dustjacket. "These memoirs put into moving personal context many of the great legal decisions of recent American history. They give a behind the scenes view of the workings of the Supreme Court as well as the relationships the Blacks had with people in power, including the Presidents with whom they associated." In the index of this book, there are 22 references to Potter Stewart who served as a Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court for nearly 24 years. In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower nominated Potter Stewart to the Supreme Court to replace Justice Harold Hitz Burton, who was retiring. Stewart served on the Supreme Court until he announced his retirement from the Court on June 18, 1981 at the age of 66. During his tenure (1958-1981) as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, Potter Stewart made major contributions to criminal justice reform, civil rights, access to the courts, and Fourth Amendment jurisprudence. Stewart leaned toward moderate, pragmatic positions, but was often in the position of dissenting during his time on the Warren Court. Stewart's philosophy might be most coherently traced to Justice Robert Jackson, about whom Stewart said: "He saw that 'judicial activism' could be a deadening and stultifying force. that every coercive and centralizing court decision deals a blow . to the ability and then to the will of the democratic process to operate with responsibility and vigor." ; Signed by Author.
