More on Daniel Nash Morgan

Daniel Nash Morgan was born in Newtown, Connecticut on August 18, 1844. As a young man he operated a family owned store, later taking on a partner and operating as Morgan & Booth. In 1879 he became president of the City National Bank of Bridgeport, Connecticut. In 1893 President Grover Cleveland named him Treasurer of the United States, a position he held from June 1, 1893, to June 30, 1897. He served under both Cleveland and William McKinley.
