Acting Governor of Wyoming from 1890 until 1893. Trained as a physician, he was elected Secretary of State of Wyoming in 1890, and ascended to the governor's chair upon the resignation of Governor Francis E. Warren to take a seat in the U. S. Senate in 1890. As governor, he called out the state militia to quell a Pine Ridge Indian outbreak, and asked for federal assistance to settle the Rustler War between cattlemen and sheepmen in Johnson County in 1892. He returned to his medical practice in Cheyenne in January of 1893, and died in 1915. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
