Yellow Books Sales and Distribution Company, Inc. v. Valle
As explained in the 1912 Supreme Court case of Jacobs v. Williams, "where the corporation appears as the primary signer, the almost universally accepted and reasonable rule of construction is that where the signature is that of the corporation, and the name or names of one or more of its officers in their official capacity are appended as subscribing agents … the corporation will be regarded as the signer and obligor, and the individuals will not be obligated," unless, "other language or the general tenor of the writing indicates a contrary intent."
