James S. Sherman

James S. Sherman Brief Biography

James Schoolcraft Sherman (October 24, 1855 - October 30, 1912) was an American politician who was the 27th Vice President of the United States from 1909 until 1912, under President William Howard Taft and a United States Representative from New York. 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 (New York, 1911), and also the first to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game.
