Also see . . .  John G. Carlisle (Wikipedia). Carlisle's tenure as Secretary of the Treasury was marred by the Panic of 1893, a financial and economic disaster so severe that it ended Carlisle's political career. By 1896, the once remarkably popular Carlisle was so disliked due to his stewardship of the currency that he was forced to leave the stage in the middle of a speech in his home town of Covington due to a barrage of abuse.
