Cabinet: John C. Calhoun

On this date in 1844, John Tyler appointed 62-year-old former Senator, former Secretary of War, and former Vice President John C. Calhoun the 16th Secretary of State. Calhoun held the job until March 10, 1845 (a few days into James Polk's term), making him one of only 13 Cabinet Secretaries to serve under three Presidents. He went on to serve another term in the Senate, dying in office in 1850.
