Grover Cleveland signs a copy of the Public Papers of Grover Cleveland, Governor of New York.
Stephen Grover Cleveland began his political career as sheriff and then mayor of Buffalo, where his leadership helped to propel him to the governorship, serving as New York’s governor from January 1, 1883 –January 6, 1885. In Albany, he championed the public interest and favored a strong civil service law over patronage.
