Chester Arthur

Political Party:Republican
Offices Held:President (1881 - 1885)
Vice President (1881)
Chester Arthur was James Garfield's Vice President and became President when Garfield was killed. Thus, there are no campaign materials for him and a very limited supply of other memorabilia. Chester was generally well regarded, though he came into the Presidency on somewhat shaky grounds. A few commemorative buttons and ribbons exist, as well as written letters and signed documents. Arthur only served one term as President – the remainder of Garfield’s term- so no state china service is associated with him. James Garfield Political Buttons Signature
Chester Arthur correspondence is rare. Though Chester is generally well-regarded, he only served one term as President, succeeding to office after the assassination of James Garfield. Most of his writing as President or on the campaign trail was written by secretaries. HE signed his letters most often “Chester A. Arthur” and sometimes as “C.A. Arthur”.
