PAINTING OF HUGHES GAINED AT LAW SCHOOL
Collection in Langdell Hall Now Has All But Three of Court Justices
An oil painting of Charles Evans Hughes Hon. '10 Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court has been added to the collection of Supreme Court judges' portraits in the south lecture room of Langdell Hall, Harvard Law School.
With the acquisition of this portrait by the German artist, Hans Schleretch, which has been given the Law School by friends, there are only three Supreme Court Judges not represented in the collection by portraits in oils from life. Dean Pound of the Harvard Law School, who takes great interest in the collection, said that he was "afraid the collection could never be completed, as there are no portraits from life of the three missing judges, as there are none, as far as is known."
