Grant, Jr. took his A.B. from Harvard University in 1874 and his LL.B from Columbia two years later and was admitted to the bar in New York in 1876. Forced by ill health to seek a milder climate, Mr. Grant and his family selected San Diego to live in 1893. He became interested in real estate and launched construction of the U.S. Grant hotel which is still in operation today in downtown San Diego. Grant had an intimate knowledge of his father's experiences in the White House inasmuch as he was secretary to his father, President Grant, for eighteen months during his second term. He was politically active running for U.S. senator in 1904 but was unsuccessful. A world traveler and after returning from one of his many journeys while suffering from throat cancer, Mr. Grant died. The circumstances were the same as his father. He was also a heavy smoker.
