A spectacular WW I-era Eastern Shore political appointment boldly signed by Governor Phillips Lee Goldsborough.
Featuring a gorgeous bronze-colored, richly embossed and detailed Seal of Maryland, this piece documents the appointment of John Scott as a Justice of the Peace in Worcester County, Maryland.

Phillips Lee Goldsborough, a native of Princess Anne, Somerset County, was responsible for the vast overhaul of the state’s education system, including the purchase of the Maryland Agricultural College, now the University or Maryland.
