About This Item

October 23, 1930., 1930.. Good. - Sepia-toned magazine portrait, 5-3/8 inches high by 4-1/4 inches wide, mounted on a 6--3/4 inch high by 4-5/8 inch wide card. Inscribed and signed on the mount below the portrait: "To Seymour Halpern, with the best wishes of / John Bassett Moore / Oct. 23, 1930." Tiny fragments of gray paper are visible along the edges of the mount where it has been removed from an album. There is a narrow vertical line of light rubbing down part of the photograph with some minor soiling to the mount. Good.

A three-quarter length portrait of the white-haired and bearded Moore, seated, and wearing a dark three-piece suit and tie with a double gold chain hung across his chest.

John Bassett Moore (1860-1947) was an American lawyer, author and professor and a Republican politician. An authority on international law, he was a member of the Hague Tribunal and the first American judge to serve on the Permanent Court of International Justice [the "World Court"]. In 1891 he took the first full professorship of international law at Columbia University, a position he held until 1924. He was a proponent of neutrality and a staunch believer in the principle of separation of powers under the United States Constitution.

The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.
