Personal Fact of Daniel D. Tompkins

Daniel D. Tompkins was an American statesman who served as the sixth Vice President of the United States, from 1817 to 1825. Born into a farmer family, Tompkins, after graduating from the Columbia College, studied law and was admitted to the bar. After establishing his legal career in New York, Tompkins entered into politics and became a delegate to the New York Constitutional Convention. Later, he served as a member of the New York Assembly and was then elected to U.S. House of Representatives but he resigned his seat, serving instead on the New York Supreme Court bench.

Afterwards, he won the election to the New York governorship, becoming the city’s Fourth Governor. During his term as governor, educational and penal reform measures were encouraged, the War of 1812 was recognized, and the militia system was restructured. In 1817, he was elected to the vice presidency of the United States in the government of James Monroe, a position Tompkins held until 1825. As Vice President, he took some notable steps towards the abolition of slavery in the state during his administration.

Although, he was re-elected as the Vice President, a decade of financial hardship coupled with charges of mishandling state and federal funds during the War of 1812 broke him towards the end of his career and he frequently remained absent from his office. Subsequently, he fell into alcoholism and died three months after leaving the office of the Vice President
