James S. Sherman

James Schoolcraft Sherman was a United States Representative from New York and the 27th Vice President of the United States, under President William Howard Taft. He was a member of the inter-related Baldwin, Hoar, and Sherman families, prominent lawyers and politicians of New England. Although not a high-powered administrator, he made a natural committee chairman, and his genial personality eased the workings of the House, so that he was known all his life as 'Sunny Jim'. He was the first Vice President to fly in a plane, and also the first to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game. To date, Sherman is the last Vice President to have died in office. ... more on Wikipedia
