William Howard Taft
 
President of the United States
 
Beautifully framed postal commission for Richmond, CA and signed by The President
on July 31, 1912
 

 

William Howard Taft( 1857 – 1930). He was an American politician, the 27th President of the United States, and the 10th Chief Justice of the United States. He remains the only person in history to have led both the Executive and Judicial branches of the United States government since the passage of the Constitution, and is also the last President to hold a public office after his term ended. A lifelong Republican, Taft served as Solicitor General of the United States, federal judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, Governor-General of the Philippines, and Secretary of War before being nominated for president in the 1908 Republican National Convention with the backing of his predecessor and close friend Theodore Roosevelt. During his life, Taft also worked as a professor of law, once at the University of Cincinnati and once at Yale Law School, and wrote for several newspapers. He was also a noted advocate of world peace.

His administration was noted for 'trust busting' and Taft broke with Teddy Roosevelt who ran against Taft on his "Bull Moose" Party ticket thus splitting the Republicans in the country and allowing Woodrow Wilson to be elected President..

This offering is a beautiful archivally framed Postal Appointment that is signed W H Taft as President. It is also signed by the Postmaster General. The overall dimensions of the framing are 24 in. x 36 in. and the size of the signed document is 15 in. x 18in. Both the document and the framing are in excellent condition and the document has an intact gold leaf postal seal.
