RICHARD OLNEY The Democratic Party Primary Presidential candidate and Cabinet member under President Grover Cleveland signed this card Signature: "Richard Olney", 3½x2 card. Richard Olney (1835-1917) was a United States politician who began his political career in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, where he served one term from 1874 to 1876. In 1893, he was appointed the United States Attorney General. In this position, he developed a pro-business reputation due to his rejection of labor strikes as a legitimate means of protest. After Secretary of State Walter Q. Gresham passed away in 1895, President Cleveland elevated Olney to the position. He formulated the Olney Interpretation of the Monroe Doctrine, which maintained the U.S. right to intervene in international disputes in the Western Hemisphere. He also converted diplomatic posts in foreign nations into embassies, thus making them permanent fixtures rather than temporary ones. These two actions have greatly elevated the United States in international politics over the years. Olney sought the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1904, losing to Alton B. Parker. Stray ink mark in upper right. Mounting stains on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
