U.S. presidents linked to Capital Region

For President's Day, Time Warner Cable's YNN did a feature on U.S. presidents with a link to the Capital Region. Included was Union’s own Chester A. Arthur, Class of 1848 and the country’s 21st president.

The College houses a number of artifacts and other memorabilia from Arthur’s days as a student, along with other items such as a walnut and leather writing desk used by President Ainlay. The Chester Arthur statue stands outside the gate to Jackson’s Garden.
