From The Free Dictionary:

Robert Whitney Waterman

Robert Whitney Waterman (December 15, 1826-April 12, 1891) was Governor of California from September 12, 1887 until January 8, 1891.

[Note: his maternal grandfather, Calvin WALDO (1759-1815) married, as his second wife, Clarissa (DWIGHT) WHITNEY, widow of Abel WHITNEY. Apparently this is the source of his middle name, as he seems not to have had any WHITNEY ancestry.]
