A portrait of William "Bill" Preston Graves who was first elected to public office as Secretary of State of Kansas serving from 1987 to 1995. In 1994 at the age of forty one, he was elected the forty third Governor of Kansas and became one of the youngest Governors in Kansas history. Graves easily won re-election in 1998 by one of the largest margins of victory in Kansas gubernatorial history. During his tenure, the largest tax cut in state history was passed into law and many state services were streamlined or privatized.

Date: Between 1995 and 2003
