History & Heroes: Five Fast Facts- Mark Hanna

Pulaski County Missouri History and Heroes

Marcus Alonzo Hanna, Ohio Senator, was the namesake of the community and post office of Hanna, Missouri in Pulaski County.

Mark Hanna photographed in 1896 by W. J. Root.

Mark Hanna photographed in 1896 by W. J. Root.

1. Hanna attended the same public school, Cleveland (OH) Central High School, as John D. Rockefeller. Hanna attended Western Reserve College but was expelled for a prank.

2. Hanna, who “had as much to do with the election of [President] Mr. Garfield as any single individual in the country,” oversaw Garfield’s body after it arrived in Cleveland following the assassination of the President. Hanna was also in charge of Garfield’s funeral arrangements and burial.

3. Hanna was instrumental in the election of William McKinley as President in 1896. A New York reporter wrote “Hanna and the others will shuffle and deal him [McKinley] like a pack of cards.” The campaign to elect McKinley, organized by Hanna, raised $3.5 million dollars- the largest election fundraising at that time. Hanna had been credited with the invention of the modern presidential campaign.

4. After winning the Presidency, McKinley offered the Secretary of State position to Senator John Sherman. Sherman accepted which led to Ohio Governor Asa Bushnell appointing Hanna in Senator Sherman’s place.

5. Hanna was no fan of Theodore Roosevelt. He once stated “Here’s this convention going headlong for Roosevelt for Vice President. Don’t any of you realize that there’s only one life between that madman and the Presidency? … What harm can he do as Governor of New York compared to the damage he will do as President if McKinley should die?” After the 1900 Republican Convention did indeed nominate Roosevelt to the ticket as McKinley’s Vice-President Hanna told President McKinley “Your duty to the country is to live for four years from next March.” McKinley won reelection and was assassinated in 1901. Roosevelt assumed the Presidency.

History & Heroes: Five Fast Facts- Champ Clark

Pulaski County Missouri History and Heroes

James Beauchamp “Champ” Clark was the namesake of Clark National Forest in Missouri. A portion of this National Forest was located within the boundaries of Pulaski County, Missouri. In 1973 CNF was “administratively combined” with Mark Twain National Forest. In 1976 Clark National Forest was absorbed by Mark Twain National Forest. 39,177 acres of MTNF are located inside Pulaski County.

“Champ” Clark as photographed by Fred Hartsook circa 1915. Retrieved via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs division.

1. Clark was expelled from Kentucky University (now Transylvania University) after firing a pistol at one of his roommates in self-defense during a quarrel. Two years later he was invited to return but he chose Bethany College instead. He graduated first in his class in 1873
2. Clark fervently believed that a good speech needed to include information from literature and history. “The wealth of his biographical material, his quotations, and his historical allusions, as well as the manner in which he adapted them to his speeches” earned him the title the “Leather-Bound Orator.”
3. In 1911, while representing Missouri’s Ninth District in the United States House of Representatives Clark was elected Speaker of the House. Clark has been described as “a fiery orator, a challenging foe in debate, and a witty, but nonetheless perceptive spokesman for the Democratic party.” He remains the only Speaker of the House from the Show Me State.
4. Clark was a shoe-in for the 1912 Democratic Presidential nomination (and most likely the Presidency) until he wasn’t. Clark never received the two-thirds majority at the Baltimore Convention. After forty-six rounds of voting the nod went to Woodrow Wilson who was elected the twenty-eighth President of the United States.
5. Clark’s residence in Bowling Green, Missouri, nicknamed Honeyshuck, is a National Historic Landmark.
