1965 appointment for the Commission on Civil Rights
Description  

Uncommon partly-printed DS as president, one page, 23 x 19, August 7, 1965. President Johnson appoints William L. Taylor as “Staff Director for the Commission on Civil Rights.” Signed at the conclusion by President Johnson and countersigned by Secretary of State Dean Rusk. The crisply embossed white paper seal affixed to the lower left remains fully intact. Affixed to a same-size mount. Slight dampstaining to upper left corner and Johnson’s signature a couple shades light, otherwise fine condition. Taylor worked with Thurgood Marshall at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, where he assisted in the landmark Brown v. Board case. He went on to make major contributions in developing and implementing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968. As Johnson’s presidential legacy is largely defined by the progress made in the Civil Rights Movement, this is a fantastic, historically significant piece. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
