Rogers, Brown, and Rogers

August 5, 2013

According to Henry F. Graff, the law firm of Rogers, Brown, and Rogers was “the only company of lawyers able to boast that two of its number went forth from its office on the road to the White House.”  (Grover Cleveland, by Henry F. Graff, p. 11)

Who were these two Presidents?

1. Millard Fillmore, who succeeded to the office upon the death of Zachary Taylor in 1850.  He was the last Whig to serve as President.

2. Grover Cleveland, who won the popular plurality in 1884, 1888, and 1892, but won the Electoral College vote only twice, thereby serving two nonconsecutive terms.  He was the first Democratic President after the Civil War.
