CLEVELAND, Grover (1837-1908) was an American politician and lawyer who was the 22nd and 24th President of the United States, the only President in American history to serve two non-consecutive terms in office (1885–89 and 1893–97). He won the popular vote for three presidential elections – in 1884, 1888, and 1892 – and was one of two Democrats (with Woodrow Wilson) to be elected president during the era of Republican political domination dating from 1861 to 1933. Partly-printed vellum Document Signed “Grover Cleveland” as president, one page, 17-3/4 x 11-3/4, October 22, 1885. President Cleveland appoints "John G. Walker, a Captain in the Navy...Chief of the Bureau of Navigation." Boldly signed at the conclusion by President Cleveland and countersigned by Secretary of the Navy William Collins Whitney. The blue seal affixed to the left side remains intact. John Walker (1835-1907) graduated at the top of his 1856 class at the Naval Academy. He served on various U.S. ships during the Civil War, including operations related to the Confederate defeats at New Orleans and Vicksburg. After the war, he served as Assistant Superintendent of the Naval Academy from 1866-1869. He continued serving his country in various roles, such as a commander of various ships and other appointed positions in the U.S. Navy. In 1882, he served several times as a temporary Naval Secretary under Presidents Chester Arthur and Grover Cleveland.
