US Senator. Represented Vermont in the United States Senate, having been elected to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Senator Solomon Foote. Served from 1866 to 1891, a period of 25 years. During his tenure in office he was involved in many of the major events of the country. He was chairman of the committee that determined the Impeachment procedures against President Andrew Johnson in 1868, wrote the 1876 bill that provided the appointment of a commission that decided the disputed Hayes-Tilden Presidential election, wrote the 1882 Edmunds Act, which outlawed polygamy, and wrote most of the landmark 1890 Sherman Anti-Trust Act. The town of Edmonds, Washington, is named after him. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
