Offered is a William Taft signed document cut displayed in a framed collage with an original photograph of the 27th President of the United States. William Howard Taft was the president from 1909 to 1913, and also served as the 10th Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1921 to 1930, the only person to have held both offices. Taft was elected president in 1908, the chosen successor of his predecessor, Theodore Roosevelt, but was defeated for re-election by Woodrow Wilson in 1912 after Roosevelt split the Republican vote by running as a third-party candidate. In 1921, President Warren G. Harding appointed Taft to be chief justice, a position in which he served until a month before his death. Taft has signed his name in black pen on a 2 x 5½-inch white paper cut from a letter. The cut is faded brown with a black typewritten valediction, “With warm regards and kindest associations, believe me, as ever, Sincerely yours,”. The signed cut is displayed below a 5 x 7-inch black and white head and shoulder portrait photograph of the statesman.  The signed cut and the photo are mounted in a blue paper matte with red borders and displayed in a 10½ x 15¼-inch gold wood frame and glass. This item comes with a LOA from JSA.
