Wyoming Statehood Celebration Attendees - Governor Francis E. Warren

Francis Emory (F.E.) Warren was appointed in 1885 by President Arthur to be Governor of the Wyoming Territory. President Cleveland removed him from that position in 1886. However, President Harrison reappointed Warren as Governor in 1889 and he was elected as the first Governor of the state of Wyoming. He resigned as Governor after being elected to the U.S. Senate in November of 1890, where he served for many years.

Governor Warren presided over the celebration program, received the flag that was presented by Mrs. Esther Morris (on behalf of the women of Wyoming), and gave a speech following that presentation, (Cheyenne Daily Sun July 24, 1890 p. 1 & 4).
