William A. Richardson Autographs, Memorabilia & Collectibles

Born: November 02, 1821 in Tyngsborough, Massachusetts
Died: October 19, 1896 in Washington District of Columbia
William Adams Richardson (1821-1896) served as Grant's Secretary of the Treasury from March 17, 1873 to June 3, 1874. In his last months in office, he became embroiled in the "Sanborn Incident". John Sanborn, who was hired by Richardson under a congressional act to recover unpaid taxes, kept much of what he had collected. Congress investigated, and, although there was no evidence of direct involvement by Richardson, his removal was demanded. Grant responded by appointing Richardson to a position on the Massachusetts Court of Claims in 1874.
