Chester A. Arthur

a.k.a. Chester Alan Arthur

Author Code: ACAA

Born: Oct. 5, 1829 - North Fairfield, Vermont, USA

Died: Nov. 18, 1886 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at Union College, Arthur spent some time as a school principal before being admitted to the bar in 1854. In 1861, he became the acting quartermaster-general for the state and reached the rank of brigadier general before leaving the military in 1862 to return to his law practice. In 1871, President Ulysses S. Grant appointed him collector of the port of New York, a post he held until his ouster by President Harrison in 1878. In 1881, he was nominated for the vice-presidency and was elected together with President James Garfield. When Garfield was assassinated, Arthur became the 21st President. Having been closely associated with Roscoe Conkling's New York political machine during his years with the port authority, Arthur quickly distanced himself from his corrupt past and led an administration that fought against corruption. He instigated civil service reform and in 1883 pushed through the Pendleton Act which established the bipartisan Civil Service Commission. Arthur's administration was also responsible for the first immigration act in 1882 and the Tariff Act of 1883. Arthur was not re-nominated in 1884 and, suffering from a fatal kidney disease, died two years later.
