Clover, Benjamin H., member of Congress, was born in Franklin county, Ohio, Dec. 22, 1837, and was educated in the common schools of his native state, after which he engaged in farming. He was a man deeply interested in all questions of public welfare and policy; served as a school commissioner, and held several other similar offices. When the Farmers' Alliance was organized he became an active member; was twice chosen president of the Kansas Alliance and Industrial Union, and twice vice-president of the national organization. In 1890 he was elected to Congress from the Third district as the Alliance candidate, but was defeated for a renomination in 1892. At the expiration of his term in Congress he returned to Kansas and the following year severed his connection with the Populist party. During the administration of Gov. Morrili he held the position of farmer at the state reform school. Subsequently he removed to Douglass, Butler county, where he committed suicide on Dec. 30, 1899.
