Included in the collection are 16 letters written by Cator on various political subjects from 1894-1915. In addition, there are several papers of a legal nature and a biography written by Harold F. Taggart. There are also newspaper clippings of Cator's activities.
Thomas Vincent Cator was born in Roxbury, New York on July 18, 1851. He spent his early years on a farm, attending the local academy when possible. After having taught school at the age of seventeen, Cator attended Cornell University. Upon graduation he entered a New York law firm and soon developed political interests. In 1880 Cator established residence in Jersey City and held an alderman's office for two years.
