Gresham's law (from Britannica Online)
Gresham's law, observation in economics that “bad money drives out good.”
legal tender, the coins composed of the cheaper metal will be used for payment,
while those made of more expensive metal will be hoarded or exported and thus
tend to disappear from circulation.
Sir Thomas Gresham, financial agent of Queen Elizabeth I, was not the first to
recognize this monetary principle, but his elucidation of it in 1558 prompted the
economist H.D. Macleod to suggest the term Gresham's law in the 19th century.

Lorrin A. Thurston (from Britannica Online)
Lorrin A. Thurston, (born July 31, 1858, Honolulu―died May 11, 1931, Honolulu),
leader of Hawaiians who opposed the monarchy and favoured U.S. annexation of
Walter Q. Gresham (from Office of the Historian, U.S.Department of State)
President Grover Cleveland nominated Walter Quintin Gresham to be Secretary
of State on March 6, 1893, and Gresham entered into duty on March 7. Gresham died in office on May 28, 1895.
As soon as he assumed his position as Secretary of State, Gresham began
investigating the circumstances surrounding the failed U.S. attempt to annex
Hawaii under his predecessor, John W. Foster. Gresham's investigation showed the direct involvement of U.S. diplomats in the overthrow of Queen Liliuokalani. On the advice of Attorney General Richard Olney, President Cleveland decided to
withdraw the treaty of annexation before the Senate. Since the Queen's
overthrow was essentially a coup by pro-American sugar planters intent on
eliminating Native Hawaiian political power, Cleveland hoped to restore Liliuokalni
to power. However, the Senate declined to give Cleveland the authority to do so.
