Biography | show moreshow less
Lyman Judson Gage (1836-1927) rose from clerk to President of the First National Bank of Chicago. As board president, he was instrumental in making the World Columbian Exposition of 1890 a success. Although he had previously supported Democrat Grover Cleveland, he campaigned vigorously for Republican William McKinley in the Presidential election of 1896, motivated by his support for the gold standard. Becoming Secretary of the Treasury under McKinley and then Theodore Roosevelt, he played a key role in passage of the Gold Standard Act of 1900. After leaving government he headed the New York-based U.S. Trust Company, and then retired to pursue his other interests: spiritualism and simplified spelling of English.
