Name the United States President, Chester Alan __________
Chester Alan Arthur served as the 21st president of the United States from 1881 to 1885. Previously the 20th vice president, he succeeded to the presidency upon the death of President James A. Garfield in September 1881, two months after Garfield was shot by an assassin. While in office, Arthur rose above partisanship and in 1883 signed the Pendleton Civil Service Act, which required government jobs to be distributed based on merit rather than patronage. Suffering from poor health, he did not run for reelection in 1884.
