Benjamin Harrison - Document Signed as President
A magnificent Presidential appointment to a well-known industrialist and railroad tycoon… George Pullman's name has become synonomous with railway cars

Description

Partly-printed Document Signed (DS) as President, signed “Benj. Harrison,” one page, 14’’ x 18’’, October 1, 1890. President Harrison appoints George M. Pullman “as a Member of the Continental Railway Commission.” Boldly signed at the conclusion in black ink by Harrison, and countersigned by Secretary of State James Blaine. In Fine condition, with intersecting storage folds, and some scattered light wrinkling and soiling. The white wafer seal is intact and in magnificent condition. On September 29, 1890, President Harrison nominated George M. Pullman to the Senate of the United States to be a member of the Continental Railway Commission, as provided for by an Act of Congress approved July 14, 1890. The Continental Railway Commission was made up of three member from the United States and certain delegates from the Latin American countries, who were authorized to consider the project of a hemispherical railroad connecting North and South America, and running from Tierra del Fuego to the “seal-bearing islands of Alaska.” George Mortimer Pullman (March 3, 1831 – October 19, 1897) was an American engineer and industrialist. He designed and manufactured the Pullman sleeping car and founded a company town, Pullman, for the workers who manufactured it. His Pullman Company also hired African-American men to staff the Pullman cars, who became known and widely respected as Pullman porters, providing elite service. He gained presidential support by Grover Cleveland for the use of federal military troops in the violent suppression of workers there to end the Pullman Strike of 1894. Benjamin Harrison (August 20, 1833 – March 13, 1901) was the 23rd President of the United States (1889–1893); he was the grandson of the ninth President, William Henry Harrison. Harrison had become a prominent local attorney, Presbyterian church leader and politician in Indianapolis, Indiana. During the American Civil War, he served the Union for most of the war. Afterwards, he unsuccessfully ran for the governorship of Indiana but was later elected to the U.S. Senate by the Indiana legislature. Harrison was elected to the presidency in 1888, defeating the Democratic incumbent Grover Cleveland.
