Joseph Allan Nevins (May 20, 1890 - March 5, 1971) was an American historian and journalist, known for his extensive work on the history of the Civil War and his biographies of such figures as Grover Cleveland, Hamilton Fish, Henry Ford, and John D. Rockefeller, as well as his public service. He was a leading exponent of business history and oral history. During World War II, Professor Nevins taught (as Harmsworth Professor of American History) at Oxford University from 1940 to 1941. Nevins served as special representative of the Office of War Information in Australia and New Zealand in 1943-1944, and in 1945-1946 worked in London as chief public affairs officer at the American embassy. Stephen Grover Cleveland (March 18, 1837 - June 24, 1908) was an American politician and lawyer who was the 22nd and 24th President of the United States, the only President in American history to serve two non-consecutive terms in office (1885-89 and 1893-97). He won the popular vote for three presidential elections - in 1884, 1888, and 1892 - and was one of two Democrats (with Woodrow Wilson) to be elected president during the era of Republican political domination dating from 1861 to 1933. Cleveland was the leader of the pro-business Bourbon Democrats who opposed high tariffs, Free Silver, inflation, imperialism, and subsidies to business, or farmers, on philosophical grounds. His crusade for political reform and fiscal conservatism made him an icon for American conservatives of the era. As his second administration began, disaster hit when the Panic of 1893 produced a severe depression. It ruined his Democratic Party. Cleveland was a formidable policymaker. Seller Inventory # 74264
