Salmon P. Chase
Salmon P. Chase (January 13, 1808 – May 7, 1873) was an American politician and jurist who served as the sixth chief justice of the United States. He also served as the 23rd governor of Ohio and represented the state in the United States Senate. He served as the 25th secretary of the treasury, leading to his being featured on the last version of the U.S. $10,000 bill. He sought the Republican nomination for president in the 1860 presidential election, but the party chose Abraham Lincoln at the national convention.
