Chester A. Arthur

Chester A. Arthur was the 21st President of the United States and a Republican, but this was a time when Republican basically meant liberal. He isn't very well known, although he did end the spoils system, so government officials couldn't hand jobs to friends. He took over as president after James Abram Garfield was shot. ironically Arthur was made vice president to satisfy the people who supported the spoils system, which Chester A. Arthur supported before becoming president.

He also once helped a black woman who filed a lawsuit due to segregation on trolley busses. [1]
