You can always tell which governors made very little impact or who served very short terms, in administrative office, in the Bahamas. There is nothing in the islands named after them. No roads. No parks. No buildings. No settlements.

Governor Jeremiah Thomas Fitzgerald Callaghan, an Irish man, may just be the shortest serving Administrator in the history of the Bahamas. He actually only arrived in Nassau in February 1881 despite being officially appointed in 1880. On his way back to England on sick leave, he died on July 9, 1881, in a hotel room, in New York.
