SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
MONDAY, MARCH 10, 1930
PRESENT: MR. JUSTICE HOLMES, MR. JUSTICE VAN DEVANTER, MR. JUSTICE BRANDEIS, and MR. JUSTICE SUTHERLAND.
MR. JUSTICE HOLMES said:
On Saturday, just as we were expecting him at a conference of the Justices, we were informed that our brother, MR. JUSTICE SANFORD, had become unconscious pending a slight operation. Five minutes later we received word that he was dead. Thus suddenly the light of a faithful worker, who was born also to charm, went out. Afterwards came the news that the late CHIEF JUSTICE had found relief from his hopeless illness in death. Such events must be accepted in silent awe.
"A committee of the Court, consisting of the CHIEF JUSTICE, MR. JUSTICE McREYNOLDS, MR. JUSTICE BUTLER, and MR. JUSTICE STONE, has gone to Tennessee for the services over the late MR. JUSTICE SANFORD, and on Tuesday the whole Court will attend the funeral of MR. TAFT.
“In pursuance of the statute the Court will stand adjourned until to-morrow, when it will be adjourned again until Wednesday next at 12 o'clock, when the matters then in order will be taken up."
Adjourned until to-morrow at 12 o'clock.
* The death of the late Chief Justice occurred at Washington on March 8, 1930. Funeral services were held on March 11, at All Souls Unitarian Church, in that city. The bui ial, on the same day, was at Arlington. The last rites for Mr. Justice Sanford, and the interment, were at Knoxville, Tennessee, on March 10, 1930.
