William Windom, Secretary of the Treasury signs card
Signature: "William Windom/Oct. 18,1890", 3¼x2 card. William Windom (1827-1891) was Secretary of the Treasury under Presidents Garfield and Arthur from March 7, 1881 to October 26, 1881 and under Benjamin Harrison from 1889 to his death in 1891. He also represented Minnesota in the House (1859-1869) and the U.S. Senate (1870-1871, 1871-1881, 1881-1883). After an unsuccessful bid for reelection in 1882, Windom moved to New York to practice law. An expansionist, Windom was a believer of a currency backed by silver as well as gold. In 1891 he addressed the New York Board of Trade and said "As a poison in the blood permeates arteries, veins, does a debased or fluctuating currency permeate all arteries of trade, paralyze all kinds of business and brings disaster to all classes of people." Immediately after, he suffered a heart attack and died. Slightly soiled. Fine condition.
