First Meeting of the National Governors Association


President Theodore Roosevelt hosted the first Conference of Governors at the White House in 1908 to discuss important conservation issues. As plans progressed, the President decided the issues were of such importance that the other branches of government should be invited too, and thus seven members of the Court attended—Justices John Marshall Harlan, David J. Brewer, Edward D. White, Joseph McKenna, Oliver Wendell Holmes, William R. Day, and William Moody. Charles Evans Hughes, attending as governor of New York, would join the Court two years later. The National Governors Association now meets twice a year.
