A portrait of Nehemiah Green, 1837-1890, who became governor on November 4, 1868, after Samuel Crawford resigned to command the 19th Kansas Cavalry. Green was a caretaker governor for the final sixty-nine days of Crawford's term, during which period the Legislature was not in session. His term in office ended on January 11, 1969. Consequently, there was relatively little State business for Green to administer. After his short gubernatorial stint, Green became presiding elder (district superintendent) of the Methodist Episcopal Church for the Manhattan District. He served as a regent of and taught military drill tactics at Kansas State Agricultural College, now Kansas State University, in 1873. He was elected to the Kansas House of Representatives in 1880 and served as speaker pro-tem until 1882. He died on January 12, 1890 after a long illness and is buried at Sunset Cemetery in Manhattan.
