HOKE SMITH The Secretary of the Interior signs on this 4½x2½ page in ink Signature: "Hoke Smith", 4½x2½. Democrat Hoke Smith (1855-1931), an Atlanta lawyer and newspaper owner, was President Grover Cleveland's Secretary of the Interior from 1893-1896. (A strong supporter of Cleveland's adherence to the gold standard, he resigned from the Cabinet when "free silver" advocate William Jennings Bryan secured the Democratic Presidential nomination. He later served as Governor of Georgia (1907-1909 and 1911) and U.S. Senator from Georgia (1911-1921). As Governor, he implemented progressive reforms such as railroad regulation and public school funding, but also implemented harsher "Jim Crow" laws disenfranchising Georgia's African-Americans. Ink smudged at the lower portion of the "H" in Hoke and the "h" in Smith. Slightly soiled. Mounting remnants on verso (no show through). Overall, fine condition.
