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 nonconsecutive terms in office (1885-1889 and 1893-1897). 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 presidential domination dating from 1861 to 1933.

His crusade for political reform and fiscal conservatism made him an icon for American conservatives of the era. Cleveland won praise for his honesty, self-reliance, integrity, and commitment to the principles of classical liberalism. He fought political corruption, patronage, and bossism.
