Former New York Governor and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Charles Evans Hughes (1862-1948) is shown on U.S. #1195, issued on the 100th anniversary of his birth.
 
Born in Glens Falls, New York, Hughes attended Brown University and Columbia University Law School.  Hughes became well known as an investigator, while counsel for a New York legislative committee. He served as New York’s governor from 1907-1910.
 
President William Taft appointed Hughes to the Supreme Court in 1910. Hughes resigned in 1916 to make a run for the U.S. presidency. He was defeated by Woodrow Wilson. From 1921-25, he served as secretary of state. President Herbert Hoover appointed Hughes chief justice of the Supreme Court in 1930. Hughes led the Supreme Court through a controversial period, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt introduced a great deal of legislation the justices found unconstitutional. Hughes retired from the court in 1941.
