The Manuscripts and Special Collections has a good deal of archival material from and about Sulzer which is available for researchers.

According to information posted on the Governor's home page, 
William Sulzer, of New York City was removed from office on October 17, 1913 and replaced by Martin H. Glynn, Albany.  Unfortunately, the site does not provide any of the interesting details surrounding his removal, but it's a start.

On page 243 of the 1922 'History of the Barge Canal', Noble Whitford
states, "The Legislature, convened by the Governor in extraordinary session
in June, remained in session the rest of the year and meantime removed the
Governor from office." Then he moves back into canal affairs and leaves use
hanging although I'm sure that anyone reading it when it was originally
published would know about this episode.

My questions are:

(1)     Who was the Governor?
(2)     Why was the special session called?
(3)     How and why was the Governor removed from office?

Thanks in advance,
