Robert Swann was appointed Comptroller after Goldstein’s death on July 3, 1998, and served until William Donald Schaefer took office in January 1999. The portrait unveiling is the first in a series of events honoring the more than 30 men from across Maryland who served as head of the agency. Maryland's comptrollers have been lawyers, doctors, bankers, miners, newspapermen, teachers and farmers and all of them have been men. Some have had a huge impact on how we live today. Some have made a difference in a quieter way.
