George Clement Perkins

George Clement Perkins (August 23, 1839 – February 26, 1923) was a U.S. Republican politician, who was the 14th governor of California from January 8, 1880, to January 10, 1883, and a United States senator from 1893 until 1915. He also served in the California State Senate. He was the third longest-serving senator in California history, after Hiram Johnson and Alan Cranston, serving 22 years. He was criticized by some for supporting business too much during his time in the Senate. During Perkins' term as governor, former Civil War general John Mansfield served as his lieutenant governor.

Perkins was born in Kennebunkport, Maine, and is buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, California. Perkins was married to Ruth Parker.
