Andrew J. Montague

Andrew J. Montague, governor of Virginia (1902–1906) and member of the U.S. House of Representatives (1913–1937), sits for an undated portrait. A conservative Democrat, Montague was one of the leaders at the Virginia Constitutional Convention of 1901–1902, and as governor he presided over the enactment of the Virginia Constitution of 1902, which disfranchised most black men in Virginia and many working-class white men.
