JUSTIN MORRILL
Card signed and dated by U.S. Senator from Vermont in 1896, two years before his death. Morrill included his birth date of April 14, 1810.
Signature: "April 14, 1810/Justin S. Morrill/Oct. 24, 1896". 3½x2 card. Affixed on verso: Short newspaper story, datelined Montpelier, Vermont, about Morris's re-election to the U. S. Senate. The story is undated, but mentions his age as 86. In 1857, while a U.S. Representative from Vermont, Morrill (April 14, 1810- Dec. 28, 1898, born in Strafford, Vermont) became the chief sponsor of the Land Grant Act, which granted land to state colleges. Signed into law by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862, the act set aside vast tracts of Federal land - 30,000 acres for each member of Congress - as an endowment for each college, which was to be built on the land. Morrill is known as the "Father of the Land Grant Colleges". He served as Representative (1855-1867) and Senator (1867-1898) from Vermont. Lightly toned and soiled. Signature is lightly spotted and smeared in places, but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
