Stewart L. Woodford

Stewart Lyndon Woodford (September 3, 1835 New York City - February 14, 1913) was an American politician. He graduated from Columbia College (now Columbia University), where he was a member of St. Anthony Hall, in 1854; studied law; was admitted to the bar in 1857 and commenced practice in New York City. Among other posts, he served as Lieutenant Governor of New York from 1867 to 1868. He was elected to the US House of Representatives as a Republican, joining the Forty-third Congress and served from March 4, 1873, to July 1, 1874.

In June 1897, President William McKinley appointed Woodford to the post of Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to Spain. Spain severed diplomatic relations with the U.S. on April 21, 1898 and Woodford left his post the same day. The United States declared war on Spain as of that date by Act of Congress approved April 25, 1898. (see Spanish-American War and Teller Amendment)
