Garret Augustus Hobart (1844 -1899) 24th Vice President of the United States, 1897 to 1899, serving under President William McKinley. He was the sixth American vice president to die in office. Hobart served in local governmental positions, and then successfully ran for office as a Republican, serving In both the New Jersey General Assembly and the New jersey Senate. He became Speaker of the first, and president of the latter. Hobart was a longtime party official, and New Jersey delegates went to the 1896 Republican National Convention determined to nominate
the popular lawyer for vice president. Hobart's political views were similar to those of McKinley, who was the presumptive Republican presidential candidate. With New Jersey a key state In the upcoming election, McKinley and his close adviser, future senator Mark Hanna, decided to have the convention select Hobart. The vice-presldentlal candidate emulated his running mate with a front porch campaign, though spending much time at the campaign's New York City office. McKinley and Hobart were elected. As vice president, Hobart proved a popular figure In Washington and was a close adviser to McKinley. Hobart's tact and good humor were valuable to the President, as In mld-1899 when Secretary of War Russell Alger failed to understand that McKinley wanted him to leave office. Hobart Invited Alger to his New Jersey summer home, and broke the news to the secretary, who submitted his resignation to McKinley on his return to Washington. Hobart died In November 1899 of heart disease at age 55; his place on the Republican ticket In 1900 was taken by New York Governor Theodore Roosevelt.
