Happy Birthday, President Wm. Howard Taft!

We at the Hamilton County Law Library would like to join the chorus of those wishing a very happy birthday to President William Howard Taft, born in Cincinnati, Ohio on September 15, 1857.

In 1926, President Taft was a judge on the bench in Hamilton County. Please enjoy his photo from the 1926 Bench-Bar Composite that hangs in the Law Library.

President Taft served as the 27th President of the United States (1909-1913), and then as the 19th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (1921-1930).

He was the only person to have held both of those offices.
