Reading and answers the question:

   Chester Arthur, the twenty-first President of the United States, was
an unlikely holder of the highest office in land. Born in Vermont
in 1830, he was the son of an Irish immigrant father and a New Hampshire
mother. After becoming a lawyer in New York, he joined the Republican
5 Party and eventually came to hold a number of state offices there,
including a position as head of the New York Customs House. Though
personally honest, Arthur' s administration was marred by corrupt
practices, and he was removed from office in 1878. When James Garfield
was elected as the Republican Party's presidential candidate in 1880's,
10 Arthur, who belonged to a faction that had supported the denomination
of President Grant, was offered the Vice-presidency as a conciliatory
gesture. Arthur accepted, and then, in 1881, was elevated to the
Presidency following Garfield's assassination. In view of his far
from unblemished record and his lack of strong political support,
15 even within his own party, Arthur's move to the White House was viewed
with great concern by many Americans, but, to the astonishment of
most, his administration proved to be a competent and honest one.
However, he never was elected President in his own right, being defeated
for the nomination at his party's convention in 1884, and dying in
20 November two years later of Bright's disease during the presidency
of a Democrat, Grover Cleveland.
