SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1926.
PRESENT: THE CHIEF JUSTICE, MR. JUSTICE HOLMES, MR. JUSTICE VAN DEVANTER, MR. JUSTICE McREYNOLDS, MR. JUSTICE BRANDEIS, MR. JUSTICE SUTHERLAND, MR. JUSTICE BUTLER, MR. JUSTICE SANFORD, and MR. JUSTICE STONÈ.
THE CHIEF JUSTICE announced:
It becomes the sad duty of the court to announce that, since its last adjournment, Mr. Justice McKenna, recently retired from this court, has passed away. His death occurred at 1.45 a. m. yesterday. No one who was present will forget the affecting scene and farewell in 1925 when the justice in this room took his leave of the court and his colleagues. As a mark of love and a tribute of respect for his twenty-seven years of distinguished and useful service on this bench; the court will, after the delivery of opinions this morning, adjourn until Tuesday noon, and will attend the funeral to be held this day at his late residence in the city at 3 p. m.
