    There is a goood biograhy of him here:
    http://www.nps.gov/history/history/online_books/declaration/bio12.htm

    He later served as governor of Massacussetts and Vice Presdent. He was criticized for his highly partisan methods while governor. The practice of gerrymandering congressional districts was named after him.

    Another quirk: Although he signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776, he refused to sign the Constitution in 1789. He preferred the more loosely knit Continental Congress.
