William McKinley was President of the United States during the end of the 19th century.

As a Governor, McKinley was the first notable politician to throw out the first pitch at a Washington Senators game, but he did not do so as President.[1]

While running for President, his "Cross of Gold" debates with William Jennings Brian were considered the last true political dialogue until the 2002 election.[2]
