Johnson, Hiram
Click to enlarge

Hiram Johnson became governor of California in 1910. As governor, Johnson successfully championed the inception of initiative, referendum and recall laws, the direct primary election, the eight-hour work day for women and children, workers compensation, free textbooks in public schools, and pensions for retired teachers. However, Johnson opposed American participation in both the League of Nations and the United Nations. After six years as governor, Johnson was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1916 and was re-elected four times. The downloadable image on this site is one of his payroll checks as U.S. Senator. By a close call, he lost his party's nomination to Warren Harding for the U.S. presidency. Johnson died on Aug. 6, 1945, the day the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. This reproduction would look great in an album or display.
