Levi P. Morton (1824-1920) was the 22nd Vice President of the United States in the Benjamin Harrison administration. After his time as vice president, Morton was elected the 31st Governor of New York. A strong ally of Roscoe Conkling, Morton was offered the vice presidential nomination by James A. Garfield, but declined at Conkling’s suggestion. Morton lived to be 96 years old, and was the longest living vice president in United States history, until being surpassed by John Nance Garner in 1964.
