DeWitt Clinton was an early American politician and naturalist who served as a United States Senator and was the sixth governor of New York.

Clinton was the leader of New York's People’s Party and was a major rival of Martin Van Buren, who was the Attorney General of New York during Clinton's governorship. Clinton believed that infrastructure improvements could transform American life, drive economic growth, and encourage political participation, and he heavily influenced the development of the New York State and the United States. ... more on Wikipedia
