ADOLPHUS W. GREELY (1844-1935), a veteran of the Civil War, survived two years of Arctic winters without being re-supplied in 1882-1884. He became, by order of President Cleveland, a Brigadier General and Chief of the Signal Corps of the Army in March 1887 of the following year. In that post, he was responsible over the next 20 years for construction of tens of thousands of miles of telegraph lines and submarine cables in Puerto Rico, Cuba, the Philippines, Alaska and elsewhere and for the Army's earliest adoption of wireless telegraphy. In 1935, he received the Congressional Medal of Honor six days before his 91st birthday. Twelve-year-old CHARLES JAMES FAULKNER (1847-1929) accompanied his father and namesake, who was U.S. Minister to France, to Europe in 1859 and attended school in Paris and Switzerland. He returned to the U.S. in 1861. During the Civil War, Faulkner entered the Virginia Military Institute at Lexington in 1862 and served with the Confederate cadets in the Battle of New Market. He was elected Judge of the 13th Judicial Circuit in 1880. Representing West Virginia, Faulkner was elected as a Democrat to the U.S. Senate in 1887, serving from 1887-1899. He was appointed a member of the International Joint High Commission of the United States and Great Britain in 1898. JAMES HENDERSON BERRY (1841-1913), a Confederate army veteran, had served in the Arkansas State House of Representatives (1866, 1872-1874; Speaker, 1874) and as Governor of Arkansas (1883-1885) before his terms as a Democratic U.S. Senator from the state (1885-1907).
