One of seven Civil War veterans to win election as governor of Pennsylvania as a Republican, William A. Stone held the office from 1899-1903. A pro-business lawyer and 4-term congressman ally of state Republican boss Mathew Quay, Stone did little as governor, and staunchly opposed the federal regulation of corporations initiated President Theodore Roosevelt.
