About Henry Carter Stuart, Governor

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Carter_Stuart

Henry Carter Stuart (January 18, 1855 – July 24, 1933) was a businessman and U.S. political figure from Virginia. He served as the 47th Governor of Virginia between 1914 and 1918, which encompassed the time period of World War I.


A graduate of Emory and Henry College (1874), Stuart was a wealthy man as a result of taking over his father's diverse financial and agricultural interests. He was an active member of the Virginia Constitutional convention of 1901-1902 and served in the State Corporation Commission from 1902-1908. He later became the first Governor in Virginia history to win unopposed in both the primary and general elections.
