Document signed: "W. McKinley" as Governor of Ohio, 1p, 8¾x10½. The State of Ohio, U.S.A., Office of the Governor, Columbus, Ohio, 1894 October 11. In full: "I, Wm. McKinley, Governor of said State, do hereby certify that A.E. Childs, whose genuine signature and official seal are affixed to the attestation hereto attached, was, at the date thereof, Clerk of Courts of Miami Co. duly commissioned and qualified; that he is the proper officer to make said attestation, which is in due form; and that his official acts are entitled to full faith and credit." Countersigned: "Samuel M. Taylor" as Ohio's Secretary of State. McKinley served as Governor from January 11, 1892 until January 13, 1896. WILLIAM McKINLEY (1843-1901) represented Ohio as a Republican in the U.S. Congress from 1877-1883 and 1885-1891, and he served as Governor of Ohio from 1892-1896. Elected 25th U.S. President in 1896, McKinley was reelected to a second term in 1900 with a larger plurality of votes than any other Chief Executive before him. The U.S. became a world power during his Presidency, winning a war with Spain (1898) and acquiring overseas colonies (Puerto Rico and the Philippines). On September 6, 1901, at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, President McKinley was shot by Leon Czolgosz, an anarchist. He died on September 14, 1901, the third President to be assassinated. SAMUEL M. TAYLOR (1856-1916) was an Ohio politician, serving as Ohio Secretary of State and in the Ohio House of Representatives. He served in the House from 1888 to 1893, and was then elected as Secretary of State from 1893 to 1897. After leaving office in 1897, Taylor was appointed as consul to Glasgow, Scotland, and later to Callao, Peru. After being appointed consul to Birmingham, England in 1913, Taylor moved to the city and served there until his death. Light folds. Light surface creases. Toned. Corners lightly worn.
