Hudson–Fulton Celebration Medal


While serving as the governor of New York, Charles Evans Hughes participated in the Hudson-Fulton Celebration of 1909. The two-week celebration commemorated the 300th anniversary of the discovery of the Hudson River by Henry Hudson and the 100th anniversary of Robert Fulton’s first successful navigation of the Hudson River in a steamboat. The festivities were held from September 25 – October 9, 1909 in cities and towns all along the Hudson River, featuring military and naval parades, pageants, and music festivals. In collaboration with the American Numismatic Society, the Hudson-Fulton Celebration Commission issued an official medal to commemorate this historic event. Governor Hughes was presented with a copy struck from sterling silver as a memento. Charles Evans Hughes would later serve on the Supreme Court as an Associate Justice from 1910-1916 and as Chief Justice from 1930-1941.
