William Henry Moody held many positions in government.  As Secretary of the Navy, he negotiated with Cuba for the original lease that permitted the occupation of the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base.  He then served as the U.S. Attorney General.  In 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt nominated him to the Supreme Court. Moody was a progressive who opposed racial segregation and spoke out in favor of African-American civil rights.  Moody wrote for the minority opinion in the Employers Liability Cases (1908) where he held that Congress’s power to regulate interstate commerce included the ability to legislate management’s relationship with employees.

US Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest federal court of the United States, established in 1788 pursuant to Article Three of the U.S. Constitution.  It has the ultimate jurisdiction over all federal and state court cases involving federal laws.  The Court normally consists of the Chief Justice and eight associate justices, who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate.  Justices have lifetime tenure unless they resign, retire or are removed after impeachment.  The Supreme Court is one of the three branches of the federal government which also includes the Executive (President) and Legislative (Senate and House of Representatives).

The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history.  The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton.  He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia-tone.  The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
