Cleveland Grover

Cleveland, Grover (born 1837), is the son of a Presbyterian minister of New Jersey. He was educated for the bar, to which he was called in 1859. In 1870 he became sheriff of Erie county. In 1882 he was governor of New York, and in 1885 was elected President in the Democratic interest. But his supposed leaning to Free-trade caused some dissatisfaction, and probably led to his defeat by General Harrison in 1888. In 1892, however, he was once more elected President, an office which he filled up to 1896, when he was succeeded by Mr. McKinley.
