What made john n. garner famous John Nance Garner IV (November 22, 1868 – November 7, 1967), was the 44th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives (1931–33) and the 32nd Vice President of the United States (1933–41) under FDR.

Garner was a member of the Texas House of Representatives from 1898 to 1902. While in the Texas Legislature, a bill came up to select a state flower for Texas. Garner fervently supported the prickly pear cactus for the honor and earned the nickname "Cactus Jack" for his effort. The bluebonnet eventually won out and was chosen as the state flower.

Prickley Pear cactus almost became the state flower of Texas thanks to James Nance Garner. Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_N._Gar… -------------------- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Nance_Garner
