About this Item

William Hastie (1904-1976), was one of the most prominent African-American legal, judicial and public figures of the 20th century. At Amherst College he was magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa and valedictorian of the class of 1925. He then attended Harvard Law school, graduating in 1930 with honors and later got a Doctor Of Juridical Science degree there in 1933. He was the nation's first Black federal judge, serving in the Virgin Islands and became a War Department official in World War II, resigning in protest over segregation in the military. He won a Spingarn award (among many others) for his courageous, racially progressive positions. This letter (dated March 25, 1927) from the Secretary of the Harvard Law School (on Law School letterhead) notified Hastie that he was conditionally permitted to enter the Law School if his college record was as satisfactory as he had described (which it was). It also stated that he would have to have Amherst send his transcript to Harvard. VG. Bookseller Inventory # 000256
