THOMAS H. CARTER
The Montana Representative and Senator signs his name in black ink
Signature: "Thomas H. Carter Senator/ Montana" in black ink. 6½x1½ clipping. 1899. Thomas H. Carter (1854-1911) was a United States Representative and Senator from Montana. Before being admitted to the bar in the 1880s, Carter attended common schools in Illinois and worked in farming, school teaching, and railroading. In 1882 he moved to Helena, Montana, and only a few years later was elected as the Republican Delegate to the Fifty-first Congress until November 7, 1889, when the Montana territory was admitted as a State into the Union, after which Carter was the state's first Representative. In Congress Carter served as chairman of the Committee on Mines and Mining, but was unsuccessful in a reelection attempt. He was named the Commissioner of the General Land Office (1891-1892) and eventually was named Chairman of the Republican National Committee, the first Catholic to ever hold that position. In 1895 he was elected to the United States Senate, where he held many posts until his retirement in 1911. Irregularly cut. Toned. Light surface creases. Ink notes on verso in unknown hand. Otherwise, fine condition.
