WILLIAM A. RICHARDSON. Rare Engraved Portrait signed: "William A. Richardson" as Grant's Secretary of the Treasury. B/w, 4¼x5¾ overall, oval image 2x2½ affixed to 6x7¾ sheet (two surfaces). 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. Lightly foxed, else fine condition.
