Signature: "E. D. Morgan/New York", 4x1¾ slip, affixed to 8x11 album leaf on which a chronological biography has been typed. Republican Morgan was Governor of New York from 1859-1862, serving as Major General of Volunteers from 1861-1863. He served one term as a U.S. Senator (1863-1869), and chaired the Republican National Committee during President Lincoln's successful bid for re-election. Morgan was offered the post of Secretary of the Treasury by President Arthur in 1881, but declined. (Reportedly, President Lincoln had sounded him out on the same office, with the same result.) A successful businessman, Morgan rose from grocer to corporate executive, serving on the boards of the Erie Railroad, Wells Fargo and American Express. Lightly soiled. Right edge of mounting page slightly frayed where it was removed from a book. Unrelated, typed text on mounting page verso shows through lightly. Otherwise, fine condition.
